Here is the chili recipe I used more or less. It also has the added benefit of being healthy.
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup of chopped onion (I use more I love onion) as well as red and green bell pepper
1 cup of chicken stock (or veg if you're looking for totally meat free)
1 cup each of sliced zucchini and yellow squash
1 can of pinto and kidney beans drained. (I used red and black I liked it better)
1 can of tomatoes
(these are 15 oz cans btw)
12 oz dark beer ( like I said a real stout one like Guinness or Old Rasputin works great)
cumin, chili powder,paprika and dried oregano to taste, start with a tsp of cumin and 1/3 of the others and work from there
you can throw in some cayenne if you want some heat
2 TBS balsamic vinegar
salt as needed
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Saute the peppers and onions with pam or something if you're trying to go lighter on med heat.
Add everything to the pot once the onions and peppers are softened EXCEPT the cilantro, salt and vinegar. Cook for like 30 min and then add the last of the stuff and you're done!
