Toppings (such as sour cream, radishes, scallions, avocados, jalapeños, cilantro, Cheddar, and toasted pumpkin seeds)
How to Make It
Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions, bell peppers, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 6 to 8 minutes.
Add the beef and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the tomato paste, chili powder, and cumin and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
Add the beer, beans, the tomatoes and their juices, 2 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with the corn bread and toppings as desired.
This recipe was simple. three basic steps, not a lot of chopping, and is great after only 25 minutes of simmering. I added some hot peppers and a little bit more chili powder and doubled the garlic. It's even better the second day!
