Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

"This recipe came from , and the original maker is MIGHTYPURDUE22. Here is the link to the original recipe in case you want to follow it exactly. I omitted all of the spicy ingredients so that it would be more child and heartburn friendly. This is the second time I have made it. We don't drink beer, so I bought a 24 oz. can, which was the smallest amount I could get. I wanted to cook it longer than two hours, and with the lid off, so I added all of the can of beer (instead of just the 8 oz., and cooked it for about five hours, stiring every 45 minutes. The preparation time is at least an hour."


2 lbs ground beef chuck (I use sirlion)
1 lb ground sausage
4 cans mild chili beans
2 (28 oz) cans diced tomatoes
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
1 large onion, diced
3 stalks celery, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
3 tablespoons real bacon, bacon bits
4 beef bouillon cubes
1 cup (8 oz.) beer
1/4 cup chili powder
1 tablespoon worchestershire sauce
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon oregano
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon sugar


Brown meat and drain (I like to put mine in the food processor to get it finely chopped). Add meat and all other ingredients to large stock pot. Stir and simmer covered on low for two hours, stirring occasionally.
