About the Recipe: This chili is my most popular. Everyone loves it. Perfect for a snowstorm, watching a football game or hanging out at home by the fire. Enjoy!
Recipe Details: A little sweet (maple syrup and molasses) and a little spicy with a Guiness kick.
1/2 lb. ground pork
1 lb. ground beef (as lean or fatty as you like)
1 small onion, diced
2 Tbsps. vegetable oil
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 Tbsps. chili powder
2 Tbsps. ground cumin
2 Tbsps. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. dried thyme
1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 can Guinness
2/3 cup barbecue sauce (this is where you can go spicier or sweeter)
1 can red kidney beans, drained
1 tsp. crushed red pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in stock pot or dutch oven. Saute onion until softened.
Add pork and beef, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it browns. When the meat is cooked through (no pink remaining), drain off any excess fat. Add all the rest of the ingredients.
Stir well, and simmer for an hour. Season to taste.
Enjoy while watching a snowstorm.
