It was wonderful taste and thickness was good but I did use just a little tomato paste to achieve the thickness I like

I used blue moon for the beer, and substituted another can of kidney beans for the black beans(just not a fan of them lol) and my pot was way too small so left out one of the 2 cans of diced tomatoes at the end but it turned out incredible! my mother, wife, daughter, and I all LOVED it! I spiced mine up after trying it with some lovely green habanero sauce after of course though!(:

The best chili ever. We top it with cheddar cheese and corn chips and sour cream....awesome. The last time I made it I only had 4 cans of rotel tomatoes, 1 can of tomatoe paste and doubled the beer...still delicious.

I personally don't put so much ground beef in, it seems excessive. I also don't use the bell pepper, but that's just me. i love the flavor and texture.

Brian W. 25 Mar
Very good! I used tofu instead of meat and replaced the beans with grapes and ... OH COME ON PEOPLE! It’s chili! Follow the recipe and have some excellent chili! I made it a bit spicy but it’s good if you have any beer left to cool down the heat after eating it I was concerned about cooking raw meat in the vegetables but it works out, just keep an eye on it to make sure it all cooks through
