Here's how to make their Mexican Brisket Chili:


6 guajillo chili pepper, seeded

1 large white onion, diced

2 large red bell pepper, diced

6 vine tomatoes, diced

4 garlic cloves

4 Tbsp chili powder

tsp. cumin

tsp. oregano

1 Tbsp. paprika

2 bay leaves

1 Tbsp. fresh thyme

1 Tbsp. black pepper

salt to taste

6 oz. Picnic Island Lager

2 Quarts beef broth

3 cups black beans

3 cups kidney beans

1 Butternut Squash

4 Tbsp. Olive Oil

2 pounds brisket, flat



Sliced Jalapeno

Cilantro and White Onion


Season brisket with salt and pepper. Cook brisket in large pot covered with beef broth at 225 degrees for six hours until tender.

While the meat is cooking, peel and cut butternut squash into cubes. Toss cubes in olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast in preheated oven until squash is tender and lightly browned, 25 - 30 minutes.

Once the brisket is tender, cut the brisket into 1-inch pieces and set the broth aside. Place brisket on a pan and broil. Broil until all edges are crispy and set aside.

Toast the guajillo peppers over medium heat. Press them down with a spatula slightly toasting them lightly. Place the roasted peppers in a blender and cover with hot broth. Let them soak for about 20 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and all seasons to the blender and blend on high until smooth.

In a large stock pot, saute onions and red peppers for about four minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for another two minutes and then deglaze your pan with Picnic Island Lager. Season vegetables with salt and pepper and pour guajillo sauce in pot. Simmer for another 30 minutes, partially covered. Add the crispy burnt ends, butternut squash, black beans, kidney beans and season to taste.

Garnish with avocado, parsley, diced white onion and sliced jalapeno.
