Hot chili is a very underrated summer menu item. Bring a big ol’ thermos of this to a picnic or other warm weather cookout, and it makes a great side to those grilled burgers and dogs. Just have some insulated cups around, and maybe some hot sauce, and you’re in business. But no matter what season it is, I hope you give this beef, bean, and beer chili a try soon.
