Beer Chili with Chilled Guacamole

I made this recipe for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking’s theme, Hot and Cold. The purpose was to mix food of different temperatures to make a dish. I decided to go with chili and chilled guacamole and I do not think I’ll ever eat chili without guacamole again. A** Blood is a hot chili powder made from ghost peppers.

1 lb Lean Ground Beef
8 oz Italian Sausage , casing removed
1/4 cup Chili Powder
3/4 teaspoon A** Blood  
1 Tablespoon Cumin , ground
1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
4 oz Tomato Paste Cans
12 oz Bottle Beer (Lager or Pale Ale)
28 oz Diced Tomatoes Cans

2 Cups Black Beans , drained and rinsed
15 oz Kidney Beans , drained and rinsed   Cans
15 oz Pinto Beans , drained and rinsed   Cans

1 Recipe Guacamole , chilled


  1. Add olive oil to dutch oven over medium-high heat. Once hot (3 – 5 mins), add the onions and peppers and saute until soft (3 – 4 mins). Add the garlic and saute until just fragrant (1 – 2 mins). Stir in the beef and sausage, breaking it up, and cook until browned (About 6 mins).
  2. Drain the beef mixture through a colander. Add the beef mixture back to the Dutch oven, and stir in the chili powder, A** Blood, cumin, and oregano. Cook for about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste into the beef mixture, and toast it for about 1 minute. Add the beer and stir up any browned bits on the bottom. Bring to a simmer, and then add the diced tomatoes and beans. Simmer on medium-low for 2 hours, stirring on occasion to prevent the bottom from sticking.
  3. Top with cheddar cheese, green onions, and guacamole.
  4. Serve with tortilla chips.

This could be served as a main course or appetizer.
