From Everyday Food

Has Kim tried this? No

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.
