Ryan Warner's Awesome Chili . . .

Ryan Warner's baby sister, Sarah, tells us her brother's chili is "to die for!" A can of Chipotle peppers and one chopped and seeded jalepeno pepper bring the zip to this creation.

"Just don't leave your winter scarf in the kitchen while this chile is cooking." Sarah adds.

Before you start, read the entire recipe - The most important parts are beer and the chipoltes in adobo.  If you can't find Siamese Twin, it was a super strong, really sweet, almost chocolaty ale, we bought it at the LCBO. It was actually pretty much undrinkable, but in chili it was off the hook. You might also want to sub out the ground beef for stewing beef.  Look for chipotles in Adobo (in a can). Use about half to three quarters of a can of chipotles and about 4 tbsp of chili powder. Add the chipotles and simmer for an hour. Taste and then add a bit of chili powder at a time leaving to simmer between additions until you’ve attained the desired heat.

1 lb ground beef

1 lb ground pork

6 strips of bacon

4 mild (or hot) italian sausages

1 large red onion

3 garlic buds

2 green peppers

1 jalepeno (seeded)

1 can Chipotles in adobo sauce

2 cans garbanzo beans

1 can Rotel tomatoes (with green chills) chopped

1 carton beef broth

1 can "Siamese Twin Ale" or other strong beer

4ish tbsp corn flour

2 tsp cumin 

4tbsp chilli powder

Start onion, garlic, peppers, and cumin in pot with some olive oil on low-med heat.

Once onions are translucent add tomatoes, beer, and beef stock. You may want to dice the chipotle peppers.

While onions are cooking, cook meats, one variety at a time so they brown nicely.

Once all meats are cooked add them to the veg / liquid in the pot.

Cook on low for 2ish hours. After chilli has reduced some and tastes good sprinkle in corn flour evenly while stirring; clumps will form if it isn't evenly distributed.
