Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and onion and cook until meat is browned all over, about 4 minutes. (It doesn’t need to cook all the way through!) Drain fat, then stir in tomato paste.
In a large slow cooker, combine beef mixture, kidney beans, crushed tomatoes, beer, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, paprika, and cayenne. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook on low for 6 and up to 8 hours. (The longer it's in the slow-cooker, the more flavor it gets.)
Taste for seasonings. Serve warm with cheese, Fritos, and green onions, if desired.
