What makes an authentic chili, especially in the American Southwest, causes many heated discussions: beans or no beans, ground meat or chunks, mild or hot and so on. In this version, you can replace the oil with bacon fat or lard for a more savory taste. Serve with warm corn bread.
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 pounds beef chuck, coarsely ground
3 large yellow onions, finely chopped
2 fresh jalapeno chiles, seeded, finely chopped
8 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons ground cumin
4 teaspoons ground oregano
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chili powder
2 12-ounce cans beer
2 cups beef stock
1 can crushed tomatoes with juices
3 15-ounce cans kidney or pinto beans, drained
2 teaspoons salt
For Garnishes
sour cream,  salsa, shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, chopped green onion or red onion

In a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil. Add half of the meat and brown, stirring occasionally, until no pinkness remains, 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a colander placed over a bowl to drain off the fat. Brown the remaining meat in another tablespoon of the oil, then drain it. Set aside.

In a 6-qt pot over medium heat, warm the remaining 3 tablespoons oil. Add the onions and saute, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5-8 minutes. Add the jalapenos and saute for 1 minute longer. Add the garlic, cumin, oregano, coriander, cinnamon and chili powder and stir until combined. Cook for 1 minute longer.

Add the reserved beef, the beer, beef stock and tomatoes and their juices and bring to a gentle simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover partially and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour.

Stir in the beans and continue simmering, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes. Add the salt and stir until blended.

TO SERVE: Ladle the chili into warmed individual bowls. Arrange small bowls of sour cream, salsa, Cheddar cheese and chopped onion alongside, for diners to add as desired.
