  1. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the salt and pepper to the flour in a bowl and mix. Sprinkle the meat with salt and pepper, then toss in the flour. When the butter has melted and the oil is hot, add the meat to the pot and brown on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Add the garlic and stir. Dump in the tomato sauce, chili powders, cumin and hot sauce and stir to combine. Add the beer, beans and 1 cup hot water. Allow to simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together the sour cream, chipotle peppers and adobo sauce in a small bowl until combined. Set aside.
  3. Taste the chili and adjust the seasoning as needed.
  4. Serve the chili topped with the chipotle cream. Garnish with the diced red onion and cilantro.
