This chili recipe is awesome during anytime of the year; but nothing is better than watching and cheering on your favorite football team with a big bowl of chili.

  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 Jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped

  • 1/2 cup of dark beer
  • 1 bag of shredded cheese

Chili Recipe Directions

Cook ground beed and sausage, drain. *If you have pre-cooked sausage, you can throw it in without cooking it first*. In a large crockpot, mix all the ingredients, until well blended. Turn crockpot on high and cook for at least 3 hours, stirring occasionally. 

With this chili recipe, the longer it simmers the better it will be. It is always better the next day….so this is a great dish for dinner, with plenty of leftovers for lunch. Once chili is ready, it’s time to add some toppings. Add shredded  cheddar cheese, corn chips and sour cream to your liking and enjoy!
