Bob's Little Known, Less Cared About Chili
March 06, 2016

We've made this twice, once following the instructions completely and once skipping the bacon and liquid smoke. I'm in the minority who prefers it without the bacon/smoke flavour but my bacon-loving family prefers it the first way! Without the bacon, this is exactly the kind of simple, clean chili that packs warmth without too much heat and totally fantastic flavour. I usually add sweet pepper and corn to chili, but this one is so perfect that I tend to add those on the side.
