2.5 lb. ground chuck or sirloin
1 large white onion, finely chopped
1 green pepper, finely chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 Anaheim or Serrano pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely chopped
4 to 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 bottle dark beer
1 cup water
4 Tbsp. chili powder
2 Tbsp. cumin
1 tsp. ancho chili powder
2 tsp. salt or salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Sprinkle of cayenne pepper

Brown meat in a large dutch oven. Remove to strainer (strain over a bowl, not in the sink). Add olive oil or vegetable oil to the dutch oven and heat over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add onions, peppers and garlic to saute over medium heat until vegetables are soft and just starting to brown. Add meat back into the pot. Add tomatoes, beer, water and seasonings. Depending on how spicy you like chili, you might want to start with half the seasonings listed and then taste later to see if you want to add more. Bring chili to a boil and then turn down to simmer. Cook for at least an hour or two, stirring frequently. Taste halfway through because you might need to add more seasonings. Serve with grated cheese, chopped green onions, sour cream or other toppings
