How do I make this chili not taste so sweet?

SO and I are making chili. He put some beer in it and now it tastes sweet. Is there anything that I can add so it doesn't taste so sweet?

It's already pretty spicy so I don't really want to add anymore spice to it.

  • Try adding vinegar (or lemon juice). A spoonful at a time till you reach the point you like.

  • Excellent idea. I added a couple spoonfuls of lemon juice and now it is AMAZING.....It was AWESOME before.

    Maybe I just wanted to feel like I helped. :-) :-)

  • Extra tomato paste might do it, too, while adding flavor but no additional spice. Beer in chili, sounds like a good idea, I'm going to file this one away for the future.
