Drunken Chili November 09 2013

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 pounds of Catullo's Medium Hot Sausage    
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onions    
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic    
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder    
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin    
  • 2 (16-ounce) bottle dark lager beer
  • 2 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes, crushed, and their juices
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • grated cheddar cheese, for garnish
Add in a mix of fresh hot peppers seeded, or unseeded if you wish. Leaving the seeds will increase the intensity of hot flavor. Wash hands thoroughly with soap after handling hot peppers!
