This is not your average chili. This one is very hearty

Top Review by FoodBooksSangria

My husband and teenaged son loved this chili. My husband said it was so tasty and unique that it should be entered in a chili cookoff. The only changes I made were to double the bacon to 6 pieces and to use Spanish chorizo, not Mexican, because that's what I had on hand. Because I don't eat meat, I can't personally comment on the chili's taste, but based upon my family's reaction, I'll definitely be making this chili again. A very nice accompaniment to it is Sue L's Chilean Rice (#82167).
