When you look at the ingredients to this chili you might think its to complicated or just not for you, but think again. It is one of the best chili recipes ever and would be perfect to serve with a cake of Mama Joe's cornbread on your Super Bowl table. Be sure and have plenty of cold beer on hand.

2 teaspoons oil
2 onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb lean ground beef
3/4 lb beef sirloin, cubed
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 can dark beer
1 cup strong coffee
2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
1 can beef broth
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons chili sauce
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon salt
4 (15 ounce) cans kidney beans
4 chili peppers, chopped

Heat oil.
Cook onions, garlic and meat until brown.
Add tomatoes, beer, coffee, tomato paste and beef broth.
Add spices Stir in 2 cans of kidney beans and peppers.
Reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
Add 2 remaining cans of kidney beans and simmer for another 30 minutes.

COOKS NOTE: I have used different beans in this chili and it is still good. Always use at least 2 cans of light red kidney beans, and then choose from Great Northern's, Black beans, or Chili beans. I like to throw about 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro in mine as well. If you think its to thick, add another can of beef broth.
