Combine celery, tomatoes and sugar. Simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Boil peeled chilies for 15 minutes or until tender. Remove seeds and cut into 1/4 inch squares. Mix oregano, cumin, MSG, pepper, salt, chili powder, cilantro and thyme with beer until all lumps are dissolved. Add the tomato mixture, chilies, beer mixture and garlic to the chicken broth.

Trim all fat from flank steak. Cut into 3/8 inch cubes. Trim all fat and bones from pork and cut into 1/4 inch cubes. Brown pork in hot fat. Add pork to broth mixture and cook slowly for 30 minutes. Brown beef in hot oil. Add the beef to the pork mixture and cook slowly for about 1 hour.

Add onions and peppers. Simmer 2 to 3 hours longer, stirring every 15 to 20 minutes.

Cool 1 hour. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Reheat chili before serving. About 5 minutes before serving time add cheese. Just before serving, add juice of lime and stir.
