I went with using 2 pieces fresh cooked bacon, crumbled. I also cut the beans in half (I hate beans...but love chili...and my boyfriend loves them both, so it was a compromise.) I also used a jalepino and yellow chili pepper rather then 2 green chili's, only because the store was out of greens. I completely omitted celery. After browning the meat I threw everything into a crockpot stirred and set for 6 hours. It tasted fantastic even better the next day. It seemed a little soupy, mostly because I didn't sub extra meat for the lack of beans...but by cutting the diced tomatos next time or adding more meat I should be good to go. This was the first time I've ever tried making chili, and though the recipe list for this one is endless...I found it worth it.
