“After trying several chili recipes, I decided to experiment in the kitchen to come up with my own recipe. Hope you enjoy it and feel free to tweak it any which way you like to adjust to your taste.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry each of the ground meats in a frying pan, separately. Drain the fats.
  2. Fry the chopped bacon partially, don't let them get crunchy because they will need to release some of their smoky flavors into the chili while it's cooking in the crock pot.
  3. Combine all the meats, beans, spices, onion, and tomatoes and sauce into a large crock pot and let it simmer on low for several hours, until the bacon is fully cooked. ( You can also use a chili pot and simmer on low for about 3-4 hours.)
  4. Add the sliced jalapeno on top of your chili for added spiciness, along with shredded cheese, sour cream and serve with cornbread or any crackers.
