In a saucepan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Add the ground beef, season with salt and pepper, and cook until browned, breaking up the meat with a spoon, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, rinse and drain the beans. Mince the jalapeño, if you’d like some heat. Add the jalapeño to the beef and stir until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the chili base, beans, and 1½ cups beer, broth, or water. Bring to a simmer to let the flavors combine and alcohol evaporate, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in about 4 cups of baby kale to wilt, 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, slice a few green onions. Set out the yogurt, jack, and tortilla chips for serving.
Ladle the chili into bowls and serve warm, passing all of the toppings at the table.
Note: The beef may arrive frozen for freshness. Store it in the refrigerator to defrost before cooking. If you need to defrost it same day, place the sealed package in a bowl of cold water, and leave the tap running in a thin stream for about 30 minutes.
