Beef and Pinto Bean Chili



  1. Heat a Dutch oven over high heat. Coat Dutch oven with cooking spray. Sprinkle beef evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add beef to Dutch oven; sauté 5 minutes, turning to brown on all sides. Remove beef and set aside.
  2.  Add oil to Dutch oven; swirl to coat. Add onion and jalapeño and sauté 8 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in beer, scraping pan to loosen browned bits; bring to a boil. Cook until liquid almost evaporates, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in paprika, cumin, and tomato paste; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add broth, tomatoes, beans and beef; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 1 1/2 hours or until mixture is thick and beef is very tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  3. Serve each bowl of chili topped with radishes, avocado, 1 tablespoon cilantro and 1 tablespoon sour cream. Serve with lime wedges.
