A lot of people have been asking for this recipe and I couldn't think of a better way to share than with y'all. Its really easy to make and makes a lot! This chili is very mild. You can add hotter peppers if you want but this is great for kids too.

How to Make Tommy's Chili

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.
