    Default Franks Famous Chili Recipe by Bean

    I used a local Porter (Beachside) beer and it worked great. DH requested shredded carrots instead of chopped next time. I used cayenne pepper and it had a real KICK! Next time Iíll use crushed red pepper.

    This recipe compliments of Frank Lewis on WOGL.

    Follow this recipe in the order it shows!

    Thumbs up

    I made this chili last night and it sure was good. For my dark beer, I used a Yuengling Black and Tan, I also upped the ground beef to 2 pounds as we like our chili very meaty, I increased the ground red pepper flakes for more of a kick and used one can of dark red kidney beans and one can of black beans.

    I didn't take a picture but mine looked like Beans ~ this is a keeper recipe.
