    I've been woking on my chili recipe for a few years now, it seems to be in constant flux, a work in progress if you will. To date, this is the best combination so far:

    Mick's Chili
    3 qts.

    2 lbs. Lean ground beef brown and drain
    2 lbs. Lean steak cubed brown and drain

    Add:
    1 cup chili powder
    1 1/3 TB paprika
    2 tsp. Cayenne pepper
    2TB ancho chili powder
    2 TB oregano
    4 tsp. Salt
    4 or 5 shakes of garlic powder
    2 10oz. Cans Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles
    2 bottles of beer
    3 or 4 shots of tequila

    Cover and simmer 30 to 40 minutes.
    Add 2 15oz. Cans Ranch Style Brand
    Original Texas Beans, rinsed.
    Simmer 30 minutes.

    Chopped onions and shredded cheese for top.

    This chili freezes very well and tastes even better the next day.​

    I usually use Red Tail or Fat Tire Ale, or whatever I have handy, since I don't drink any of the standards (Coors, Bud, Miller, crap like that) I cannot attest to the quality of chili made with the lighter beers.

    Enjoy.

    I'm serious, chili is one of the few things I don't joke about. I make it this way evry time. Ocasionally I will change an ingredient or add one, but right now this is my staple. You can substitute water for the beer and tequila, the original recipe started with water. Over the years, as you can see, I've taken the water out.
