1 tbsp vegetable oil
3 medium onions, chopped
6 garlic cloves, chopped
coarse salt and ground pepper
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
3 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 lbs ground beef chuck
3 cans (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes in juice
1 bottle (12 oz) mild lager beer
2 cans (14.5 oz) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
shredded Cheddar cheese
1. In a large heavy pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add onions and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened 3 to 5 minutes.
2. Add tomato paste, chili powder, chipotles, and cinnamon. Cook, stirring, until mixture has begun to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add beef, and cook, breaking it up with a spoon until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
3. Add tomatoes with their juice, beer, and beans. Bring to a boil and reduce to a rapid simmer. Cook over medium heat until chili has been thickened slightly and beans are tender, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese, if desired.
