Prime Pairings - Killah Wu-Tang Chili

 Killah Wu-Tang Chili

On a wintery night in Boulder, I initially popped open a bottle of Ghost Face Killah to enjoy by itself. The Twisted Pine Brewing creation is self-proclaimed as “the hottest beer this side of hell.” Finding this out for myself, I decided to repurpose the fiery brew and added it into a pot of steaming chili. Voila! While some may be brave enough to drink it by itself, the Thirst team is partial to creating a spicy beer chili that will warm you to your core.


  • 1 poblano pepper diced
  • 1 serrano pepper diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 oz fresh cilantro
  • 1 bunch of green onion chopped
  • Salt, cayenne & pepper to taste
  • 4 oz green chile diced
  • 2 16 oz cans Hatch green salsa
  • 2 lbs chicken (whole)
  • 32 oz can of black beans
  • 1 Twisted Pine Ghost Face Killah pepper beer


Combine all the ingredients except the beans in a slow cooker. Cook on medium for 4-5 hours. Remove whole chicken pieces and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and add beans. Heat until chili is hot.

Serve with fresh cilantro, sour cream and tortilla strips.
