    Dr. Jenny's Note:

    Another winner from our "The Chili Cookbook" by Norman Kolpas. This was easy to make, came together quickly, and made for a tasty lunch. We omitted the sour cream as neither of us really care for it.

      Nice hearty, stew-likes(thick), chili. We really loved the added flavor from the bacon. I made this as written with exception of only using 1/2 of the cayenne pepper for personal and dietary needs of DH. We both like a little heat in our chili, but still want the chili powder to be the major taste/spice flavor of the chili and this wasn't in this case, but that is a personal taste. The other problem I had with the recipe and directions, was that is was very greasy when made as directed. After it was done, there was quite a bit of grease floating on top, from the oil used to cook veggies and then from the added bacon and ground beef fat. I spooned it off the top and then used a mop type of tool for the rest of it. Next time I would cook the bacon first, til crisp & set aside, then I would add the veggies and ground beef and drain them, when finished cooking. Then I would proceed with the crushed tomatoes etc. Thanks for sharing the recipe, one we will repeat with our tweaking for spice and procedure. Made for Photo Tag Game.

      Well worth making, and made for great comfort food on a cool, damp day. Made this as posted though I omitted the salt, and red onion.. (don't prefer red onion). Seasonings were nice and well balanced, and made this exceptionally good. Definately enjoyed here. made for Rookie Tag.
