Ingredients

  • 1/4  Cup  canola oil
  • onion, diced finely
  • cloves garlic, minced
  • jalapeños, seeded and diced
  • 1 1/2  Pound  80/20 ground beef or bison
  • 2  Tablespoons  chili powder
  • 1  Tablespoon  cumin
  • 1  Tablespoon  kosher salt
  • 1/2  Tablespoon  black pepper
  • 1  Cup  dark beer
  • One 28-ounce can tomato purée
  • One 28-ounce can petite diced tomatoes
  • One 14-ounce can black beans
  • One 14-ounce can kidney beans
  • Shredded white Cheddar, for serving (optional)
  • Sour cream, for serving (optional)
  • Sliced scallions, green parts only, for serving (optional)

Directions

Preheat a Dutch oven over medium heat and add the oil. Next, add the onion and sauté until tender, about 8-10 minutes. Add the garlic and jalapeños and sauté until just tender, about 2-3 minutes. Add the ground meat and seasonings and cook until the meat is just browned through, about 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Deglaze the pot by adding the beer, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan using a spoon. Finally, add the tomato purée, diced tomatoes, and beans. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer partially covered for 30-45 minutes. Remove from the heat and serve with desired toppings.
