Chef Jasper's Notes: Chiliheads beware...This chili is definitely a "Blue Ribbon Chili" and so easy to make! Old Barley enjoys his brewski and loves cooking with local beer, especially Kansas City's own Boulevard Pale Ale, which adds a truly unique flavor to his famous chili. Serve with any number of condiments such as Tabasco, shredded Henning's Cheddar, sour cream, minced onions & saltines. I love to serve over macaroni or spaghetti. I also think Tippin's® Jalapeno Cornbread on the side is a must!
