Well, I'm one of several thousand reviewers who loved this chili. If you've found this review, than you already know all the variations people made to enhance/improve it. I replaced the ground beef with steak, cubed it and removed the fat, used flavored canned tomatoes instead of plain, used 2 Tbsp brown sugar instead of the white, and sauteed the veges and garlic in the bacon fat (I cooked 4 strips). Be sure you know the flavor of the beer you add as it will be noticed. I was afraid of too much heat so I reduced the chili powder to 1/8 cup and it was only slightly "hot." I entered our local chili cook-off contest and it won first place in the meat and bean category however, all the other entries were much spicier. For our taste buds, I'm glad I cut down on the heat. It is time consuming but worth it!
