Texas Cyclone Chile was conceived almost 30 years ago with the idea of adding many of the local flavors from the state of Texas and surrounding region. The beer used is from the southern part of the state. While the chili powders and peppers used are from different regions of the southwest. When I first created this recipe the firefighters at my station weren't too happy that the chili wasn't spicy enough for them. I got teased to no end with them calling my chili very tasty tomato sauce. So I decided to amp up the recipe with cayenne and smoked chipotle chili peppers. What was conceived is a chili that has been recognized throughout the Dallas Fire Dept as a flavor packed tradition.
