This recipe is from a Southern Living 5-star recipe collection. It's my family's all-time favorite chili recipe. Might look like a lot of ingredients, but it's not hard to put together. We like to top with shredded cheddar, sour cream, tortilla chips and extra hot sauce. Also delicious with broccoli cheddar cornbread (recipe posted separately).


2 # ground beef
½ t. chili powder
¼ t. ground cumin
2 large onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded/chopped
2 T. vegetable oil
2 (15-oz) cans tomato sauce
1 (15-½-oz) can mexican-style chili beans, undrained
1-½ c. water
1 (6-oz) can tomato paste
½ c. salsa
3-4 T. chili powder
1 (16-oz) can red kidney beans, drained
1 (12-oz) can beer
1 (2-¼ oz) can sliced ripe olives, drained (optional)
½ t. ground cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
Top chili in bowl with:
Shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream
Sliced ripe olives
Tortilla chips
Hot sauce or salsa


Ingredients are separated by STEP. 1) Brown ground beef with chili powder and ground cumin. Drain and set aside. 2) Saute onions, garlic and jalapeno in vegetable oil about 5 minutes, or until tender. Add ground beef mixture. 3) Stir in tomato sauce, chili beans, water, tomato paste, salsa and chili powder. Cover and simmer 20 minutes. 4) Add beans, beer, olives, cumin, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer another 15 minutes or until ready to serve.
