    (see tips for substitutions)

    beef tenderloin or steaks
    red bell peppers
    olive oil
    black beans
    diced tomatoes
    chili powder
    black pepper
    dark beer
    decaf coffee
    chipotle chili powder


Easy to substitute, ground chicken, textured meat substitute, for "meat"

Substitute spices and peppers as wanted.

I use dark beer and decaf coffee to deepen the flavors. Beer will loose alcohol if cooked for awhile. I sometimes use my own stock, especially with a mirapois with any bones that came with the meat.

I find grilling the jalapeno deepens the flavor and lowers the heat. This chili recipe is on the mild side, so add heat as wanted.

No need to add cornmeal/masa or any thickener, just watch the moisture to avoid over dry or soupy chili.
Substitute real coffee for decaf, if your guests don't mind.

I often serve on brown Basmati rice and with cornbread.


cut into steaks. take half of spice ingredients, half salt, and all sugar as a dry rub for the beef. grill or broil the beef to get a good crust, but as rare as possible (will cook for hours more), slice into small pieces

grill or broil jalapeno until dark patches all over, let cool, then pull off skin and seeds, finely dice

finely grate carrots so they will be just a texture and flavor

finely chop onions and red bell pepper

saute onions till softened, then add carrots, jalapeno, garlic, bell peppers, and spices for 10 minutes

add in beef, tomatoes, coffee and beer

add in salt to taste a little at a time, let meld at least 10 mins before tasting

at least a half hour before serving, add cornmeal, beans and parsley (and/or cilantro)

Slow cooking and stirring occasionally for 2 to 4 hours, good for crock pot.

Great for leftovers and freezing.
