I have made this for years in prep. For our annual pumpkin cut party.
I agree when reheating.......use more beer.. It feeds many!
This was really easy to make,and that's a plus. But I thought it was rather bland with a little too much tomato flavor. When I heated up the leftovers, it was even more bland. It's not bad or gross, just bland. If I were to make it again, I might just stir in a chili seasoning pack. It makes a lot, and it's filling for the amount of calories in a serving, also a plus.
Prepared the recipe almost as is...substituted 2 cans (16 ounces each) of diced tomatoes for the Crushed tomatoes as I didn't have the Crushed tomatoes on hand. I also omitted the green pepper and the hot pepper sauce as I prepared this for my children and I and they don't care for green peppers or spicy foods.
This has been my favorite chili recipe for years now. I get requests for it all the time. I do add more garlic and usually a bit more salt at the end (after tasting). I also add a can or corn to the recipe. I agree with the other reviewer, the sour cream and cheese is a must do. For heating up the next day add more beer. The beer flavor of this chili makes it a winner every time!!!!
I delieted the beer,garlic, oregano,stewed tomatoes and paste and pepper sauce and added a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes and 1 small can of tomato sauce with 2 cups of water and let simmer down to desired consistency
