Chili With Beef, Pork and Beans

READY IN: 8hrs 30mins
Recipe by VT Mike O

This is a chili recipe that I made up on the fly, taking things I liked from different versions of chili I've had and adding a few new ones. This is great with tortilla chips or just in a bowl. I prefer to eat mine on the couch while watching football.

Made this for My 3-Chefs October 2013 tag game and I wasn't disappointed (DH gobbled it down). I did cut the recipe in half but otherwise followed the instructions. Served over fritos, topped with green onions slices, cheese and sour cream. Had a green salad on the side. Thank you for posting.
