Stove Top

Ingredients

2 lb
ground round or ground sirloin (the leaner the better)
2 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1
large sweet onion
1 bunch
cilantro
2 bottle
beer, shiner bock works best
4 clove
garlic, chopped
1
juice of one lime
2 Tbsp
dried parsley flakes
5 Tbsp
mexene chili powder
3 Tbsp
cumin, ground
2 can(s)
fire roasted tomatoes
1 tsp
hickory or pecan liquid smoke. ( i use the pecan)
2 can(s)
ranch style beans
2 can(s)
chopped green chilies
1 lb
colby cheese, cubed
1 bag(s)
tortilla chips or scoop corn chips
2 Tbsp
sugar
2 Tbsp
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brown your hamburger meat it a large pot in the olive oil. Drain any fat away, if you use really lean meat you don't have to drain at all.
2
Add the entire chopped onion, the garlic and half of the bunch of cilantro, and the lime juice, cook until the onion is done.
3
Add beer, the entire cans of tomatoes, one cans of green chilies, all the remaining spices and bring to a boil.
4
Add both cans of beans and bring to a simmer. After simmering for 15 minutes, add sugar and salt to taste. I usually do not have to add salt and very little sugar, just enough to counter the acidity of the tomatoes.
5
Serve with cubes of cheese, cilantro and extra green chilies.
