EASY BEEF CHILI RECIPE

EASY BEEF CHILI RECIPE

I love this quick and easy beef chili made with black beans, tomatoes, homemade chili spices and beer. This chili pleases all the palates in my house – not to too spicy (although you can kick it up if you wish), loaded with flavor, and ready in less than 30 minutes.
