Season ground beef with salt and pepper. In a large pot, brown ground beef on medium heat until just crumbly. Drain. Add green pepper and celery. Continue browning beef. Add chili powder, cumin, garlic, and freshly ground pepper. Blend well. Add tomato sauce and beer. Add extra spices to taste. Reduce heat to simmer and allow chili to reduce to desired thickness.
Serve over Fritos with sour cream and cheese.
If you like beans, add one can drained beans and an additional 1/2 can (about 7 1/2 oz) tomato sauce.
For a vegetarian chili, substitute ground beef with 1/2 cup TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein). In heat-safe bowl, add boiling water to TVP until just covered. Steam until TVP absorbs the water and takes on a gummie texture (2 1/2 - 3 minutes).
The original recipe is doubled in all ingredients. It's a bit too much for my family, but sometimes I use the original recipe and freeze half.
