Meh. This was "OK." While I don't think this was terrible, I wouldn't race to make it again (sorry!). Fullly expecting TONS of leftovers, I plan to serve them sometime in the near future (again, this is not THAT bad). I'll have to serve this on a night when I can invite my parents or friends over for dinner tho... my hubby didn't care for this at all (he thought this was too beany / bland). For me, this was super tangy, almost too tangy. To my surprise, I could taste no spice whatsoever. I don't think using hot tomatoes & green chilies, a hot chile sauce or a hotter variety pepper would make a noticeable difference either, so I won't be reattempting this to find out. Another surprise? The beer was totally unnoticeable. I even used a dark, flavorful beer as directed (Bischof premium black lager is all my hubs could find at the Italian market we grocery shopped at this weekend). Serving bowlfuls garnished with Frito's, cubed avocado and shredded Mexican-blend cheese added a nice touch (this seemed more like chili to me, hence the idea). This just needs more spice to appeal to me / us. Thanks for sharing your idea tho, Chad! :-)
