- Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the green pepper, onion, jalapeno, garlic and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
- In the pan used to cook the vegetables, heat the remaining oil over high heat. Add 1/4 of the combined meat to the oil and brown it on all sides for about 6 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and brown the remaining three batches of meat. (Use a little more oil if needed.)
- Pour the stock into the pan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the brown bits in the pan. Set aside. In a stockpot, combine the meat and the vegetables. Add the salsa, cumin, oregano, chili powder, coriander, cayenne pepper, reserved stock and beer to the pot and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
- Uncover and simmer 30 minutes to 1 hour to thicken the chili. The meat should be tender but not falling apart. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve over rice.
- Mexican oregano is available by mail from Penzeys Spices: (414) 679-7207. Regular oregano can be substituted.
