    1      Tsp           Salt
    1      Tsp           Pepper
 * (we use half this amount and seed the chiles)
 1. Soak and cook beans until tender.
 2. In a soup pot, saute ground meat and sirloin until done.
   Remove.  (We saute in a little olive oil)
 3. Add onions, garlic and cilantro to pot and saute for 3-5
   minutes or until onions are softened.
 4. Add chicken broth, beer, poblano peppers and tomato. Bring to
   a boil and reduce to a simmer.
 5. Add meat, beans, tabasco, oregano, cumin, parsley, salt and
   pepper. Stir well.
 6. Simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
 Note: you could eliminate the meat by using TVP® for the ground
   and doubling the amount of beans. I have not tried this

 Tony’s notes: Fresh poblano peppers are essential to
 this recipe. We've found they tend to be rather mild in mid-
 summer, with the hotness increasing as they move into the end of
 the growing season. Adjust the number of peppers to your taste
 and the hotness of the particular chiles you use. Incidentally,
 although it’s heresy to say it, this is a pretty low-fat recipe.

 NOTES : O.K., folks, try the following recipe, then come back and tell
 me it’s not chili.  The only rule is you have to cook up a
 batch and try it first. - Tony (tony.lima@toadhall.com)
