So, I made this tonight for the Super Bowl party and it was an absolute hit! The lights are out in the stadium now, so I decided to give my rendition of this recipe. I first started by cooking thick cut peppered bacon from Whole Foods and used the grease to cook the veggies (I added a teaspoon minced jalapeño) then added all of the dry ingredients to bloom the flavors. I also added 2 teaspoons of cocoa, molasses and Dijon mustard. Then I made a well in the Dutch oven and browned the Italian sausage, then the hamburger (I used 1/2 the amount of hamburger) and then added a pound of finely diced stew meat. Once that it was browned I brought it up to a very high heat and deglazed with beer until there was no grease left. I added the tomatoes and Bush's medium chili beans, half of the cans drained. I let it simmer for 5 hours and it was delicious!! I believe that this will be my go to chili recipe from now on.
