Instructions

Combine beef cubes, ground beef, and sausage in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook meats, stirring often, until browned. 

Drain meat and remove from pan; season with salt and pepper. Reserve.

Discard drippings from Dutch oven; add onion, red, and yellow peppers and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, 5-7 minutes.

Return meat to Dutch oven and stir in tomatoes, beer, 1 cup broth, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, tomato paste, chili sauce, green chiles, chili powder, cumin, 2 tsp. salt, and if desired, cayenne. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until meat is very tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

If chili seems too thick, add remaining 1 cup broth. Add beans during last 20 minutes of cooking time. 

Serve with cheese, sour cream, and scallions, as desired.
