Bohemia Big City Chili Recipe

I am a little late with this post but did you all know that February 27th was National Chili Day? I never knew that there was a national chili day! We love chili here in our home and throughout the Fall and Winter months, I make it pretty often for my family.

The great folks over at Bohemia sent me this recipe for Big City Chili to share with all of my readers. It looks delicious and will make 8 servings.

Bohemia Big City Chili Recipe

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 ¾ pounds boneless beef short ribs, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 large red onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 bottle (12 ounces) Bohemia beer
3 jars (16 ounces each) Frontera Guajillo Salsa or Frontera Roasted Tomato Salsa
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano, crumbled
½ teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons masa harina (corn flour for tortillas) dissolved in 1/4 cup water
2 cans (15 ounces each) white beans, drained

Crumbled queso aƱejo or crumbled queso fresco
Sour cream
Chopped onion and fresh cilantro
Crumbled Frontera Tortilla Chips

Instructions: Heat oil in large Dutch oven over medium heat. Pat meats dry with paper toweling. Season well with salt. Add meat to hot oil in a single, uncrowded layer. Cook, turning until brown on all sides. Remove to a large plate. Repeat to brown all meat. Add onion to drippings in pan and cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook 1 minute.

Stir in beer and scrape up all the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Boil to reduce slightly, about 3 minutes. Stir in salsa, chili powder, oregano and cumin. Return meat to pan. Simmer, partially covered and stirring often, until meats are tender and falling apart, about 2 to 2 ½ hours. Stir in dissolved masa and cook and stir until mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Stir in beans and season to taste with salt, usually about 1 teaspoon. Simmer a few minutes. Serve with garnishes.
