Chili is pretty tough to match with wine. You've got the strong
chili sauces plus grease to contend with. A nice beer is probably
the best adult beverage. If you need to stick with wine then you
want one that is big in flavor and has some spice of its own.
A nice California Zinfandel
will do the job as will a Sirah/Shiraz
or a nice Rhone
