Doomed Planet Chili Recipe

Raymond Co-Founder / Editor-in-Chief

Hello Humans… The Aliens are back at it again with another amazing recipe using the best craft beer around. This time the beer comes from our friends at Lord Hobo Brewing Company. When the Massachusetts brewery sent us their delicious Black Double IPA: Doom Sauce, I immediately thought “This will pair perfectly with Chili” but instead of pairing with, I decided to incorporate it into the recipe. The “Doomed Planet Chili” was born…

You will find the recipe below.
