Ok...this is good stuff! The recipe is also very fogiving. First off...I didn't have dark beer. The 7-11 I stopped at didn't have any in the single cans/bottles and since I'm not a beer drinker I didn't want a 6 pack. I bought a Miller Genuine Draft. I also bought a cup of Dark French Roast coffee while I was there! Whoever stated in their review that the coffee and beer flavors came through must not have cooked it long enough. I do not drink beer OR coffee, but found no hint of their individual flavors.
As many other reviewers...I used all ground beef.
I didn't want to bother with peppers, so used Rotel with chilies. I also had only 1 can of tomato paste, so I threw in a 2nd can of Rotel.
I cut the chili powder and cumin amounts slightly and only used about 1/4 cup of brown sugar. I also had to leave out the beans, since my boyfriend won't eat them. I heated some seperately in a small pan and added them to my bowl. The resulting chili was just marvelous, even with changes!
