It takes all the components of a classic BBQ sauce (brown sugar, cumin, worcestershire sauce, chili powder, etc.) and combines it with beans and beef to make a really satisfying chili. You can add more or less beer to get the consistency of chili that you like… I prefer a little thinner chili so I add more, if you like a thicker one just add the one bottle. The biscuits are just a simple pre-made mix dressed up with a few extra ingredients, but they end up tasting similar to the ones at Red Lobster which I love! You can also lighten this chili up by using turkey bacon, ground turkey, and a light beer s substitutions.
Ingredients: For the Chili – 1 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 lb bacon (chopped), 2 lb ground beef (I used chuck only because our butcher has a really lean cut of it, but generally you’ll want to get ground sirloin or anything with less than 15% fat), 3 tbsp chili powder, 1/2 tbsp cumin, fresh ground pepper, 2 medium onions (chopped), 2 garlic cloves (minced), 1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, 3 tbsp light brown sugar, 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce, 1 bottle of full flavor beer (you can use water here if you won’t want to use alcohol), 1 cup chili sauce, salt. For the biscuits – 1 pkg biscuit mix (I always use bisquick cheese-garlic), 2/3 cup milk, 4 scallions (chopped), 2 cups cheddar cheese (grated and divided)
