This is a really hearty chipotle chili as it includes using a dark beer such as Guinness or a porter.

Combined with black beans, sirloin meat and the kick of chipotle peppers and you have a real winner on your hands.

I’ve shared this recipe on the blog before, but it was when GrillGirl was in its very early days. My co-worker just won a Chili cookoff with my recipe, so I just had to share with you all in case it might help you win too!
