Chipotle Chorizo Beer Chili

February 28, 2019


To celebrate #NationalChiliDay I figured I would share my humble little recipe. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but I came up with the recipe myself and I'm pretty proud of it. Let me know any changes you would make and what you think!


Chipotle Chorizo Beer Chili



- 2 lbs lean ground meat (I prefer venison, 93/7 beef is fine)

- 1 lb chorizo

- 1 lb ground sausage (if you can find chipotle breakfast sausage that's awesome but any breakfast or italian sausage works)

- 2 cans/bottles of your favorite beer. I use Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. Texas Red. For best results finish rest of six pack while cooking.

- 1 large onion diced

- 2 cloves of minced garlic or spoonfuls from jar of garlic

- 5 tbsp chili powder

- 1 tbsp cumin

- 1 tsp cayenne

- salt and pepper to taste

*have some fun with your seasonings though, I actually put some black garlic and chpotle seasoning as well

- 1 28 oz can roasted diced tomatoes

- 1 15 oz can tomato sauce

- minced chipotle peppers to taste. I put about 1/2 of the small cans. Tablespoon maybe? Some people may be okay with just a couple of teaspoons

- 1 6 oz can tomato paste



- In a large pot with olive oil, cook the onions and garlic down until fragrant and onions somewhat translucent.

- Deglaze the pot with first can of beer. Cook down and stir a bit.

- Put in the meat, chorizo, and sausage and cook until crumbly, chopping and stirring regularly. You can drain the grease if you want I guess...I don't because if you're cooking with a lean enough meat it does pretty good at absorbing it.

- Pour in the chili powder, cumin, cayenne and any other seasonings you choose. Thoroughly mix into meat.

- Stir in the diced tomatoes (make sure all liquid is drained!), tomato sauce, chipotle peppers, and second can of beer.

- Bring to simmer and transfer to slow cooker and simmer for at least 8 hours.

- Stir in can of tomato paste about an hour or two before serving to thicken back up.


Hope you enjoy!
