Three Chiles Chili
 
2   dried california (anaheim) chiles
2   dried new mexico chiles
2   chipotle chiles, dried or canned
12 oz.  beer
2 tsp  vegetable oil
1 medium  onion, chopped
2 large  cloves garlic, minced
2 lb.  beef chuck, well trimmed, chili grind
1 cup  beef broth
1 tsp  ground cumin
1 tsp  paprika
1 tsp  dried oregano
1/2 tsp  sugar
1   salt
 
split the dried chiles in half and remove stems and seeds (if using canned 
chipotle chiles, do not add them at this time). put them in a saucepan 
with the beer. bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes, 
stirring occasionally to be sure all parts of the chiles are softening. 
while chiles are simmering, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a skillet and 
saute the onions 5 minutes, then add the garlic and saute 1 minute more. 
remove onions from the pan, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil, and cook 
the beef, stirring frequently, until the beef is lightly browned. put the 
beef and onions in a large pot or dutch oven with the beef broth. bring to 
a boil, reduce heat and simmer. put the chiles and cooking liquid in a 
blender or food processor. if using canned chipotle chiles, remove the 
stems and add chipotles to the blender. puree until a thick red sauce 
forms. push the sauce through a sieve to remove the bits of skin, then add 
sauce to the simmering meat. stir in seasonings and sugar. continue to 
simmer for at least 1 hour, until meat is tender, adding beer, beef broth, 
or water if needed. add salt, adjust seasonings to taste.
