It’s still freezing cold in Michigan and there is nothing better to help fight the cold then a big bowl of pipping hot chili. I like my chili sprinkled with a bit of cheese and sour cream. Alan and Emma like theirs with saltine crackers and a bit of heat. Regardless of how you like to eat this cold weather dish this Bohemia Big City Chili recipe is one to try.

Stir in beer and scrape up all the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Boil to reduce slightly, about 3 minutes.
Stir in salsa, chili powder, oregano, and cumin. Return meat to pan. Simmer, partially covered and stirring often, until meats are tender and falling apart about 2 to 2 ½ hours.

Serve with garnishes.
