Backstory

This is an easy recipe, it's not quite what I want it to be yet. I'm aiming for a thicker "broth" in the future with the spice level kicked up a bit. This is a good recipe nonetheless, and fairly easy.

*As a sidenote, the recipe below includes the minimum cook time instructions, but after bringing it to a boil and then simmering I cut the heat down as low as it would go, covered the pot and let all the flavors marry for about an hour.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped red onion (about 1 medium)
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper (about 1 small)
  • 8 ounces extralean ground beef
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 (19-ounce) can red kidney beans, drained
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (14-ounce) can beef broth
  • 1 (12-ounce) can/bottle beer (I used Miller)
  • 1 tablespoon yellow cornmeal (I used 1 1/2 Tbsp)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (omitted)
