Chipotle Beef and Beer Chili
Made with a pound of ground beef chuck and a can of kidney beans, this hearty, spicy chili will knock your socks off. The recipe starts like most chili recipes do: You’ll sauté chopped onion in oil before browning the meat, but a few special ingredients—stirred in with the peeled tomatoes and beans—up the ante. Chipotles in adobo sauce lend the chili a smoky, complex flavor, and a bottle of dark Mexican beer, like Negra Modelo, keeps the stew moist without watering it down. Double the recipe for high-protein freezer meal.
