DARN GOOD CHILI! Mmmm the best!

2 c. water
1 c. beer ( or can substitute 1 c. beef broth)
1- 1 1/4 lbs. lean hamburger
2 Tbsp. onion powder
1 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp mustard from fridge (any kind you like & have on hand)
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. chili powder
3/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. Chipotle chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
3/4 Tbsp. salt
3/4 tsp. ground allspice
8 oz. can tomato paste
3/4 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 lrg. and 1 small whole bay leaves
Crumble raw hamburger (do NOT brown) into water, add all ingredients, stir with wooden spoon while bringing mixture to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, for 3 hours, chili will thicken as it cooks, stirring occasionally. Due to raw meat in initial mix - DO NOT taste for at least 1-2 hours. Remove bay leaves. Serves 5 to 6. Serve and top with cheese, and onions, if wish. Great on chips with cheese, on hotdogs or hamburgers, or serve with cornbread. ~ ENJOY :) IS So delicious and worth the wait! Freezes well or enjoy over the next 3 days.
