  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 Fresno chile peppers, sliced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chile powder
  • 1 large fresh bay leaf
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (12-ounce) bottle beer
  • 4 cups beef stock

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the bacon, cook until browned, and remove with slotted spoon. Add the beef, brown well, and then add the potatoes, onions, chiles, carrot, garlic, chile powder, and bay leaf. Season the mixture liberally with salt and pepper, and cook 10 minutes more, stirring frequently.

Add the beer and stir about 2 minutes, or until the beer almost cooks out completely. Stir in the stock, thick Worcestershire sauce, baked beans, and tomatoes, and thicken to desired consistency, about 20 to 45 minutes over a steady simmer for loose to super-thick chili. Cool and store for make-ahead meal.

Reheat over medium heat with a little water, if necessary, to loosen up the chili, so it will heat through without scorching. Serve in shallow bowls topped with green onions.
