 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4  pound         ground meat -- * see note
    1      medium        onion -- finely chopped
    4      cloves        garlic -- chopped
                         ground chili peppers -- to taste
    3      tablespoons   ground cumin
    1      teaspoon      oregano
    1      15 oz can     diced tomatoes -- undrained
    1      10 oz can     Ro-tel tomatoes -- undrained
    1      can           beer
                         salt -- to taste
 
 1) Brown the meat, drain off most of the fat, add onions and garlic. Saute til 
 translucent.
 2) Add the ground chiles (I have pure ground chiles, not chili powder, but use 
 what you've got. I probably use 6-7 tablespoons), cumin, and oregano. Saute for
  a few more minutes.
 3) Add the tomatoes (plain and Ro-Tel), and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and si
 mmer @ 15 minutes. 
 4) After 15 minutes add the beer, and continue to simmer another 15 minutes or 
 so, til you get the desired consistency.

 NOTES : You may use any kind of meat or meat substitute you desire, it works (a
 t least for me, I was a veggie for 3 years)
 Also, this is my catch-all quick burrito filling, taco salad mess etc etc, 
 and if one insists, you may add beans.
