We adapted this smoky, chunky, and spicy chili recipe from a delicious recipe provided by the Beef Council. We found that everyone loves the layers of flavor packed into this dish. Between the seared beef, beer, smoky peppers, and black beans, there is a lot going on with this chili. If you prefer a less spicy version of this dish, you can omit the chipotle peppers, and if you like more spicy, just use more peppers! Also, you can substitute corn meal or all purpose flour for the masa, but the flavor won’t quite be the same. Enjoy!
