Trim all fat from meat and cut into 1/2" cubes. In a 2 qt. pot, combine celery, tomatoes and sugar, simmer for 1 and 1/2 hours. Boil the green chilies for 15 minutes, let cool and remove the skin, seeds and veins, then cut into 1/4" squares. Mix all dry ingredients into beer until all lumps disappear. Combine the beer mix, tomatoes, chilies and garlic with the chicken broth and set aside. Brown the pork and then the beef, set aside. Add the onions and peppers to what is left from the cooked meat. Simmer until onions are done. Add every thing else and simmer for 2 to 3 hours. Let cool and place in the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours.

3. Just Peachy Carrots

1 Pound(s) 450 g frozen baby carrots
1 1/2 Cup(s) Apple juice
3 Tablespoon(s) Butter
2 Tablespoon(s) Brown sugar
3 Peaches peeled and sliced

In a saucepan cook the carrots in the apple juice until tender, drain. Heat the butter in a skillet. Add the brown sugar, stir until sugar melts. Saute the peach slices until tender. Add the carrots. Toss only to glaze. Serves 4.

When I make it I kind of improvise. I used fresh carrots sliced since we have so many I didn't want to buy them. I used some apple juice, some water, and some juice from peaches....I used canned peaches because they aren't in season here. It still turned out fine. I got this recipe from a cookbook called "Dining In"

Bake a Better Muffin: Spray muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray; fill tins two-thirds full with batter; add a few tablespoons water to the empty spaces to keep empty cups from burning. For easier removal, allow muffins to "rest" in tins a few moments after baking. To reheat muffins, wrap loosely in foil, then heat in a 450F oven about 5 minutes.

Notes: Makes 12 Servings. Use stick margarine, non-diet.
*The zest of a lemon, a lime or an orange is the peel without any of the pith (white membrane). To remove zest, use a zester or the fine side of a vegetable grater.
