Sweet & Sassy Chili

When I was growing up we had chili quite a bit. It was definitely one of my Dad’s favorite dishes, so he made it for us whenever my Mom left him in charge of making dinner. Now, whenever it’s cold out I pull out my big red pot and make my own chili. This chili is a little different from my Dad’s. This version is sweeter and a little saucier, but still reminds me of home. I hope you enjoy this recipe, it will definitely warm you up on a cold day and also provide some great leftovers for a few days.

Instructions
  1. Place ground beef in a large pot and sauté over medium high heat. Add spices and chopped vegetables, cook until soft.
  2. Deglaze pan with the beer and bring to a bowl. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, beef broth and black beans. Simmer over medium heat for an hour.
  3. After an hour, add bbq sauce and simmer for another 15 minutes. Chili will be delicious at this point. You can simmer until you've reached your desired consistency. Simmering longer will result in a thicker chili.
  4. Ladle into bowl and top with your favorite toppings. I like sharp cheddar cheese and cilantro.
