Default Chili in Wagner #10 Round Roaster

Posted this on another site a few weeks ago, and this is pretty much how I do it every time so I thought I'd share. It's a pretty tomato heavy recipe as that's how my Mother used to make it. You can use less tomatoes if you like.

I cooked this same recipe last week, along with a pan of jalapeno corn bread and fed 11 people lunch at work. (It was my turn to cook)

===============

This was cooked in a No. 10 Wagner Round Roaster which holds 8 quarts. If you have a larger or smaller pot, you'll have to adjust.

Do not cover pot. Let it cook down.

Main Ingredients:
  • 2 Lbs Boneless beef chuck (Shredded) (Often sold as taco meat in California)
  • 1 Lb. Ground beef 80/20 (Do not drain after browning)
  • 2 Dried chipotle chilies (Photo No. 3)
  • Diced tomatoes, (2) 28 oz. cans
  • Tomato sauce (2) 28 oz. cans
  • Diced tomatoes from Mom's garden (3). (Optional)
  • Cilantro chopped fine (hand full), and whole leaves (handfull) (for color later)
  • Black Beans, (2) 15 oz, cans or one larger can (Drained & rinsed).
  • Kidney beans, (1) 15 oz. can (Drained & rinsed).
  • Guinness 3/4 - 1 bottle.

Spices: (To taste, sample often)
  • Oregano
  • Cumin (Lots)
  • Dill weed. (huh, hu huhhh... He said dill weed!!)
  • Garlic salt
  • Sage
  • Seasoned pepper
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Ancho chili powder
  • Mom's homemade chili powder (Optional)
  • Love (NOT optional!)

Preparation:

Brown all meat with a small hand full of onions and a couple dashes of seasoned pepper.

Add meat, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and beans to large pot.

Add another small hand full of onions, cumin, chili powder, and other seasoning (taste).

Simmer on LOW for 45mins - 1 hr. (stir occasionally) until the sauce has cooked down a bit.

Add remaining onions, Guinness, and chopped cilantro leaves.

Taste. Add seasoning as necessary.

Remove chipotle chilis

Simmer down for a while longer then serve with diced onions, shredded cheese, cornbread or crackers on the side.

Using Guinness is a new one. Does it impart much "Guinness" taste to the chili?

Honestly, hard to say... I always use beer in my chili, and I love Guinness, but sometimes it's a Corona when the weather is hot. Guinness is usually more of a Winter beer for me.

When the chili starts to boil down and it needs some more liquid, that's when the beer goes in the pot, and in me.
