  1. Deseed and stem the dried chilies. Heat them in enough chicken stock to cover the chilies and let them soak for 15 minutes. 
  2. Meanwhile, heat up large pot to medium-high heat. Add the MagicalButter and onion, and let the onions caramelize. 
  3. Add the jalapenos, serranos and poblano peppers to the pot. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the onions start to turn translucent. Add the garlic about halfway through this step. 
  4. Add the ground chuck and ground sirloin and cook until fully browned. 
  5. Lower heat and return to the chilies.
  6. Remove chilies from the stock (discard stock) and place them in a blender, along with the chipotles in adobo sauce and sun-dried tomatoes. 
  7. Add a little bit of stout (or water/chicken stock) to help move everything around if needed. 
  8. Puree until nice and smooth and then add to chili pot. 
  9. Add the crushed tomatoes, smoked sausage, chili puree, spices and everything else to the pot. Stir well. Cook at a low simmer for 2-4 hours. 
  10. Serve with cheese, sour cream and crackers. Enjoy!

Note: This recipe makes several servings, which makes it perfect for sharing. But, you can also freeze leftovers in freezer bags or a freezer-safe container for use at a later date.
