The Infamous Chili Recipe


4-5 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 jalapeño chiles, minced
1 habañero chile, minced
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced

big pinch salt
ground spices and dry herbs (to your taste):
  • black pepper
  • cumin
  • chili powder
  • oregano
  • garlic powder
  • cayenne pepper
  • crushed red chile flakes
  • ginger
  • cinnamon
  • whatever else you think might go
1-2 ounces red wine or cider vinegar
1 lb (400g) ground meat (I generally use beef sirloin)
1 bottle Mexican beer
1 28-oz can crushed tomatoes
1 14-oz can diced tomatoes
2-3 14-oz cans beans of your choice, drained and rinsed (pinto, black, red or any combination all work well)
1/2 cup tomato ketchup
2-3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 capful (about 1/2 tsp) liquid smoke
liquid condiments (to your taste):
  • mustard
  • soy sauce
  • hot sauce
  • again, whatever else you think would be good -- this isn't science
juice of 1 lime
1 bunch fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
