Cami's Guinness Chili

Lately, a staple in my house has been the crockpot! During the cold months, chili is one of my favorite meals to make. (And one of the most requested, too - my turkey chili in particular!)

I decided to change things up this go-around and make some Guinness chili! I guess my taste buds of changed - Guinness isn't half bad. I remember when I first tried it - I was repulsed by it. Now, not only is it pretty tasty but it makes a delicious chili, too!!

I've made it in a "chili cook-off" with a friend and a unanimous decision was made - mine won. ;)

  • 1.5 lb ground turkey/chicken
  • 1 bottle of Guinness beer
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 can red kidney beans - drained and rinsed
  • 1 can white kidney beans - drained and rinsed
  • 1 can black beans - drained and rinsed
  • 1 large can of diced tomoatoes
  • 1 small can of tomato sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon (at least) of chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • a couple dashes of salt & pepper
  • a dash of hot sauce


1. Brown your ground turkey/chicken, diced onions, and garlic cloves together.

2. Once the ground meat is cooked and onion is translucent, drain the excess "juice" from your meat/onion/garlic mixture. Put the drained mixture into your crockpot.

3. Add the rest of your ingredients together - add the Guinness and hot sauce last.

4. Cook on high 4-6 hours or on low 8-10. (I opt for 8-10 - the longer, the better, I've found!)

5. Serve with cheese or sour cream on top - whatever you prefer! Most of all - enjoy!!

Is chili a staple in your house? If so, what's your favorite recipe? I always love trying new ones.
