Yield: 6 servings 


Active Time: 30 minutes
Start to Finish: 1 hour

For this recipe you’ll need:

  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil 

  • 1 onion, medium dice 

  • 1 red pepper, medium dice 

  • 3 cloves garlic, rough chopped 

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder blend

  • 1 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper powder 

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin 

  • 1 cup dark beer

  • One 28-ounce can whole tomatoes, crushed with their juice 

  • 1 to 2 canned chipotle peppers, rough chopped 

  • 1/2 cup your favorite barbecue sauce 

  • Two 15-ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed 

  • Water as needed  

  • 1 cup frozen corn, defrosted 

  • Salt and pepper to taste 


    Garnish options:  

  • Sour cream 

  • Grated cheddar cheese

  • Tortilla chips 

  • Sliced or diced avocado  

  • Hot sauce 

      1. Heat a deep, heavy pot over medium heat and add the grapeseed oil.

      2. Sauté the onions and pepper until lightly caramelized, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic, chili powder, chipotle powder and cumin and cook until aromatic, about 1 minute.

      3. Deglaze the pan with the beer and scrape up any bits of fond from the bottom of the pan. Stir in the tomatoes, chipotle peppers, barbeque sauce and beans.

      4. Simmer the chili to blend the flavors, about 30 minutes. If the chili is too thick, add a splash of water.

      5. Stir in the corn kernels, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

      6. Ladle into bowls, and top with the garnishes of your choice.
