Frank, I love this chili. I have made it several times, and just made it last night again, but had to change it a little due to lack of ingredients. I only had one can of diced tomatoes, so added one can of rotel cilantro and lime diced tomatoes. I had one pound of ground turkey and just less than one pound of sirloin steak chopped in small pieces. I didn't want to go to the store, so had to make do with what I had. My beer was Yuengling and it worked out great. We like spicy, but not to hot, so added 1/4 cup chili pepper and several dashes of hot pepper sauce (chihula sauce), no pepper flakes or jalapeno peppers, just some shakes of red pepper. My beans were one can of pintos and one can of kidney. Many changes, but so similar to your recipe. It turned out great and I just wanted to let you know that these small changes can still produce a great chili. If you have a large group to serve, you can also cook a pot of white rice and serve the chili on top - really can feed a crowd. I have college age kids and friends and am always looking for ways to feed a lot without too much expense. Everyone raved about the recipe on a cold evening. Update 3/17/14 I am still making this delicious chili and found that a stout beer is the best to use. I follow the recipe as written except for adjusting the spices down a little for our taste. I still get great reviews when I serve this. Thanks again!
