Boilermaker Chili
Recipe Type: Main
Author: Grill Dome Admin
I pretty much went by the recipe, except for using half pinto and half dark kidney beans, and adding a touch of cinnamon. Its not very hot just warm as is so adjust accordingly. Also, I would not do the celery again as its just kind of weird having something crunchy in chili, maybe add a little celery powder instead.
  • 2 lbs Ground Beef Chuck
  • 1 lb Bulk Italian Sausage
  • 3 (15 oz) Cans Chili Beans, drained
  • 1 (15 oz) Can Chili Beans in spicy sauce
  • 2 (28 oz) Cans Diced Tomatoes with juice
  • 1 (6 oz) Can Tomato Paste
  • 1 Large Yellow Onion, chopped
  • 3 Stalks Celery, chopped
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 Green Chile Peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp bacon bits
  • 4 Cubes Beef Bouillon
  • 1/2 Cup Beer
  • 1/4 Cup Chili Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Dried Oregano
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp Hot Pepper Sauce
  • 1 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp White Sugar
  • 1 (10 ½ oz) bag Corn Chips
  • 1 (8 oz) package shredded Cheddar Cheese
  1. Heat a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Crumble the ground chuck and sausage into the hot pan, and cook until evenly browned. Drain off excess grease.
  2. Pour in the chili beans, spicy chili beans, diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Add the onion, celery, green and red bell peppers, chile peppers, bacon bits, bouillon, and beer. Season with chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, oregano, cumin, hot pepper sauce, basil, salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika, and sugar. Stir to blend, then cover and simmer over low heat for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. After 2 hours, taste, and adjust salt, pepper, and chili powder if necessary. The longer the chili simmers, the better it will taste. Remove from heat and serve, or refrigerate, and serve the next day.
  4. To serve, ladle into bowls, and top with corn chips and shredded Cheddar cheese.
