    My Note:  I have made this many times with whatever beer Mr. SP has on hand.  Any type seems to work just fine.  Someone left a Guinness at our house so I used it to get it out of the fridge.

    I took this chili to Wintergreen last weekend to share with my friends.  Everyone loved it and not a drop was left.  This is a great recipe that I highly recommend.

    2. Sounds great. Chili is one of the few things I never follow a recipe with. But, I see several things there I need to add to my next batch.

      One question, what is the stirring thing in that first picture?

    3. Wish I had this recipe last week. I made chili for the boys poker night and I think they would have loved this. Sounds great for next tho. Thanks for sharing. Stella

    4. I will try this. I posted a recipe using salsa in chili, but the beer makes this one very interesting. I think I have the ground beef from The Meating Place just waiting for this recipe.
      BTW, you are welcome to Applejack Lane any day you are in the area.

    5. I like that nifty little black tool you use for breaking down the meat while browning. Where does one get one of those?
      Ahhhh chili…..nothing says comfort like a nice bowl of hot chili. I put chocolate in mine…seriously!
