I have to admit, I was pretty nervous about trying this one...the reviews were kind of all over the place. Some loved it "as is" others thought the beer and the vinegar were too much. Plus I was bummed out that very few of the reviewers commented on which beer they chose to use. In the end I chose this recipe because the list of ingredients was interesting and I was looking for something different. I'm glad I took a chance. And just so you know, I used a can of PBR (I figured a mild beer wouldn't over power the chili, like other reviewers mentioned they had run into). Also like other reviewers mentioned I threw it into the crock pot after browning the beef and adding seasonings. I kept it going for about 5 hours on low. The only changes I made were using ground turkey instead of beef and I added 1 can of pinto beans and 1 can of canellini beans. Other than that I followed the recipe. I will definitely make this again.
**I just finished my second helping and wanted to add that the beer flavor does kind of linger in your mouth a bit. I think next time I will try a better beer, still mild but step it up a notch. If it's going to linger it may as well be one I like ;-)
