What you’ll need:

1 lb. Ground Beef

¼ cup Chili Powder

1 ½ tsp Cayenne Pepper

1Tbsp Cumin

Salt & Pepper to taste


Start by browning the ground beef over medium-high heat and add onion, jalapeno, bell pepper, and garlic. Then, drain the meat/veggies, and pour into a 5 quart pot. Add tomato and drained cans of beans, and seasonings. Pour the Cutthroat Porter over the meat and beans and stir well (if you like a soupier chili, you can add another ½ beer or ½ cup of water). Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 30 –60 min. Salt & Pepper to taste.
