Great recipe! I did follow the advice of some, and used cubed steak instead of ground chuck. I also adjusted the spice just a little, and I'm glad I did because had it been any spicier my kids wouldn't have been able to eat it. I used real bacon instead of bacon bits and omitted the beer only because I didn't have any. I also used a variety of beans; chili, great northern, kidney and black, again, because that's what I had on hand. I also cooked in my crockpot on low for 8 hours then refrigerated overnight and warmed back up in crockpot for a couple hours the next day. Overall, a good recipe. Although, my family could not really tell the difference between this and the recipe I usually make which requires far less ingredients and is less expensive to make.
