Championship Chili

Chili is one of those comfort foods that is great any time of the year.  Whether you are coming in from the cold or a scorching hot sunny day it just makes you feel good.  In the middle of winter it can warm you up and in the summer it can make you sweat and cool you off.  I enjoy a boldly flavored Chili but not one that is overly spicy.
The mix of spices I use in my Chili are bold but not so hot as to burn a hole in your tongue.  It has a well balanced flavor and is thick and rich enough to leave everyone satisfied.

It's sweet, it's hot! and it's fantastic!


3 lbs. ground beef
5 cups tomato puree or sauce
1 cup water
1 bottle of your favorite beer
3 peppers , diced ( any colours)
1 large white or spanish onion, diced
4 green onions, diced
