This is my very favorite chili recipe ever. I love, love, love it. It's full of all good things--beans, tomatoes, peppers, onions, and beer. And it's just super simple to make.
1 large can whole peeled tomatoes, pureed in a blender
4 cans of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 medium onions, diced
2 large tomatoes, diced
2 bell peppers, diced
1 can good beer
water as needed
salt and pepper to taste
chili powder and cumin to taste (OR 1 to 2 packets of chili seasoning)
a pinch of sugar if your tomatoes are not super ripe
Put everything in a big pot and heat to a simmer. Turn stove to low and continue to cook until veggies are tender and the sauce is thick. Add water as needed to prevent the chili from becoming too dry or scorching.
