Crockpot Beer Chili

I thought I would take a break from all the sugar and chocolate that I have been posting and share with you a perfect dinner idea for the busy holiday season. After all we do have to eat some regular food in between all that chocolate and sugar, don’t we? If only we could live on just chocolate……

We love chili in our house and eat it often during the fall and winter, but I like to have variety, so I am always looking for new and unique chili recipes.

I have seen several recipes for chili recently that called for beer. I had never thought of putting beer in my chili, but I was intrigued by the idea because I had used wine and beer in other meat dishes and had always been happy with the results.

Beer usually gives things a nice depth of flavor and also helps tenderize meat. In this recipe it did just that. This chili had both great flavor and texture. And the beer in this recipe added a unique flavor and without being overly strong or beer like.

The other ingredient that I used in this chili was ground pork, but it is not necessary. You could easily use all ground beef or even part ground turkey, but the ground pork gives it a nice flavor that we enjoyed.
