Chili Cook-off 2nd Place: Smokey Bacon Chili

This recipe makes a very hearty, barbeque-flavored chili! It disappeared pretty fast at our cook-off. Needless to say, it won second place in our competition. Stay tuned for our first-place winner!


Smokey Bacon Chili

1 lb. hamburger browned and drained

1 can kidney beans drained

1 can butter beans drained

2 cans pork and beans

1 cup ketchup

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup onions (optional)

3 Tablespoons white vinegar

1 Tablespoon liquid smoke

6 pieces of bacon, crumbled 

Cook on high in crock pot for 3-4 hours, or medium for longer, or you can cook it all on the stove just until it is hot.  

Simple, but delicious!
