This is my new 'go-to' chili recipe! Between the recipe and other reviews, I ended up with a great pot of chili that we completely demolished, even all the leftovers (which just got better)! I took a few notes from other reviews, however. Instead of ground beef, I used a mix of cubed chuck steak and stew meat. I started the entire process in a skillet: I fried the bacon, cooked the veggies (omitted the green bell pepper) in the bacon fat, then used the pan to brown the meat in stages. Between each pan of meat, I used the beer to deglaze the pan (ended up using an entire bottle of beer). Everything went into my slow cooker. I used a mix of beans (black, kidney, and chili beans in spicy sauce) - and all the cans I used were either 'low sodium' or 'no salt'. Like other reviewers, I left out the Tabasco and used brown instead of white sugar. Yummy and perfect spicy for us!
