Sweet & Spicy Beer Chili
Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: An army!
  • 1 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled & chopped
  • ½ of a large sweet onion, diced
  • 4 slices of bacon, cut into squares
  • 4 tomatoes, cored and cut into large sections
  • 6 sweet mini peppers
  • 1 gold habanero pepper
  • 1 green jalapeño
  • 1 red jalapeño
  • 1 package of ground turkey (Around 20 oz)
  • 1 15oz can of garbanzo beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 15oz can of black beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 15oz can of dark red kidney beans, drained & rinsed
  • 24 oz jar of chipotle salsa
  • 12 oz can of your favorite beer (I used Pabst Blue Ribbon)
  • 1 TBSP sugar
  • 1 TSP cinnamon
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • Shredded cheese for topping (Optional)
  1. Add oil, syrup, garlic, onion and bacon to a large stockpot. Simmer over a low heat until onion softens and bacon becomes cooked through.
  2. Wearing gloves to protect your hands, de-seed and chop all peppers. The jalapeños should be cut into larger pieces while the habanero should be chopped into small sections. Rinse all of your chopped peppers in a colander, then add with the remainder of the ingredients to the stockpot, stirring thoroughly. Cover and bring to a boil until all meat is cooked through, then reduce heat and simmer until ready to serve.
  3. Dish into bowls and top with a handful of cheese, if desired. Best enjoyed with a side of Chilaca Pepper Cornbread & a cold beer!
