Default Beer chili recipe?

Yes I searched the internets and worked the google. Looking for reccomendation on a good recipe for a work chili cook off.

I got robust porter, california common and blu moon clone. And a few stragglers. I figure the porter would prolly be my best option.

Thanks.

On Monday, I made a chili with oatmeal stout. It was awesome! The coffee-ish flavor really gave a boost to the chili.

It was a regular venison chili- browned onions, and chunks of meat. Added a can of tomatoes, about 8 ounces of beer, some tomato sauce, chili powder, three jalapenos (minced), one chili (minced), cumin to taste, oregano, three gloves of garlic and cooked all day. I added some ground red peppers afterwards, to increase the heat. It was really good!

I'm not a fan of adding some beers to chili, it tends to give it a kind of swampy, skunky aroma imho. Personally I like to have my beer in a nice tall glass next to big bowl o red If you really want to though, use the porter. The dark, caramel-like flavors will compliment the heat and acidity of the chili. Things like pilsners and hoppy pales just add bitterness and skunk.

I always use a pale or amber ale, or a dark(er) lager in mine. This year, I used Dos Equis that someone had left here after my Labor Day cook-out. You want the beer to compliment the all of those other ingredients, not really over power them.

I have added my wit to a chili batch, I think the coriander works well there.

Porter or stout, IMHO.
