Chili for the Alcoholic

Ok, not really...but the recipe we have I use either beer or wine.  With the weather getting a nice chilly temperature, it's finally the perfect soup/chili weather! Feel free to use as much organic ingredients as possible!  ;)

3 lbs. ground beef (or ground turkey)
1-2 onions, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, mashed
1-2 cans diced tomato(we use the Trader Joe's diced and fire roasted tomatoes that have green chilis in it)
1 can kidney beans

1/2 - 1 Tbsp. ground cumin
2 Tbsp. dried oregano
2 Tbsp. dried basil
1 Tbsp. chili powder
Red chili flakes (to taste)
1 can beef stock (or a couple tsp. of Superior Touch beef base)
2 cups beer or 1/4 to 1/2 cup  wine
(optional) 1 small can chopped green chilis
Goat milk yogurt (or sour cream) for garnish
Tortilla chips for garnish
Avocado for garnish
Cheese for garnish

Brown the meat and then add the remaining ingredients.  Cook at least an hour.  The longer you cook it the more flavorful it is!  Garnish individually!
