Black Bean Chili

Black beans give a rich, full flavor to chili.

Serves 4-6

1 1/2 pound Ground beef
1 large Onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon Garlic, minced
1 1/2 Tablespoons Cumin
2 cups Black beans
1 cup Tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup Mild green chilies, chopped
1 cup Beer
Salt, pepper, and hot sauce to taste
Monterey Jack cheese, grated

In a heavy soup pot, brown the beef. Add the onion and garlic and cook until just brown. Drain off any excess fat. Add the remaining ingredients (except the cheese). Bring to just under a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Serve warm, garnished with the cheese.
