That is what I was thinking too.
Or Shiner Bock.
But it makes my heart sad to see all of that alcohol boil away.

I've made a Steak and Shake Chili recipe that was darn good, had cocoa and a can of Coca Cola in it... Guiness is much better.

A 12 pack of Shiner Bock is priceless around here... I'd have to drive at least 500 miles south to find it!

Do they still make Pearl Beer? Not my fav but it was drinkable... some Lone Star would be good right now (I just ran out of Budweiser!)

You can always consult a "professor!"

Yes, add a bottle of Guiness when the meat is done frying.

Thanks for the beer suggestions, everyone! I don't drink it, never developed a taste for it, so I really don't know anything about it. I usually ask at the liquor store, but those guys typically are not big cooks.

My brother in law from Missouri's idea of chili was Wick Fowler's use half the chili powder none of the spices and a whole giant bottle of ketchup.

That would be more Sloppy Joe than Chili.

They used to be a staple on the school cafeteria menu when I was growing up.

Somewhere around here I have a really good recipe for homemade Sloppy Joe's, but haven't made them in a long time. Might have to go dig out the recipe...

I remember my first experience with North Slope chili.
It smelled like hot ketchup.
My brother in law was a real picky eaters no spices no herbs and he wouldn't eat one pot meals like stews and soups.
Everything had to be separated in his plate.

My stepbrother is like that. Foods cannot touch each other on the plate.

Ketchup in a chili?

You are all going to freak out! My chili: Morningstar Farms vegetarian crumbles, a packet of mild chili mix, chopped onions, a few chunks of tomato, lots of kidney beans and topped with cheddar cheese. I then pour a Coke over ice and dive in! OK, let me have it... I deserve it...
