Beef and Beer Chili

WebMD Recipe

Beef and Beer Chili

Chili is one of America's favorite lunch or dinner entrees -- especially during the winter months. Served with cornbread, it really hits the spot. I happen to be a "hot" spice lightweight, so you'll need to add extra chili powder, cayenne pepper, or jalapeno if you want a hotter chili.


  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 pound beef top round (such as London broil), trimmed of fat and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced or chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano flakes
  • 14 1/2 ounce can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes (or similar)
  • 1 cup light or non-alcoholic beer (beef broth or water can be substituted)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons halved and seeded, finely chopped chili pepper or jalapeno chili (optional)
  • 15 ounce can low-sodium kidney beans (or pinto beans) drained and rinsed
  • for serving, onion, (optional) finely minced
  • reduced-fat sharp Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, grated (optional)


Step 1
Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large, nonstick frying pan or skillet. Add beef, onion, and garlic, stirring occasionally, until browned (about 3 minutes).
Step 2
Spoon beef mixture into crock pot. Add paprika, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and stewed tomatoes (including liquid), beer, jalapeno if desired, and beans. Stir to combine. Cover and turn crock pot on LOW. Cook 8-10 hours.
Step 3
Sprinkle each serving with minced onion and grated cheese if desired.
