Chili is a wonderful meal to make for any occasion as it is high in fiber, filling and goes a long way. I chose to make this version using Italian beer as the base; as well as a lean ground beef (90/10), but you can also substitute ground turkey or chicken in it's place.
The beer with the addition of fire roasted tomatoes gave this chili a wonderful flavor. It's also a great dish to serve when having guests as it can keep warm in the slow cooker so they can help themselves. Serve it 'as-is', over rice or egg noodles or use it top hot dogs, burgers or nachos.
