  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 onion, diced finely
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 jalapeños, seeded and diced
  • 1 1/2 pound 80/20 ground beef or bison
  • 2 tablespoon 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)
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
