1 pack thick bacon -- for top when done
2 grilled chicken breasts
beans ---- chili beans, pinto beans, baby limas --- not sure on quantities though
green bell pepper
vidalia onion
couple jalapenos
can of white corn
canned tomatoes
spg
chili powder
sour cream for top when done
cheese for the top

Dont think I forgot anything ... I usually put in different quantities as I get started...
gonna get this started by browning up ground pork and drain,add chili powder then add chopped onion and chopped peppers and jalapenos, get that all going first ...

starting to look like chili ....

added 2 cans chili beans, 1 can pinto beans, 1 can baby limas,1 can corn, and a can of crushed tomatoes ( 28 oz )
now gonna let it all cook another hr or so so all flavor releases
here is a look

we always add corn ... natural sweetener ...

will grill up 2 nice skinless chicken breasts in an hour or so .. and fry up some bacon for the top .. probably let chili cook another 2 hrs ...
note .. added no tomato sauce this time .. usually add a small can or so .. between the tomatoes, and the crushed tomatoes .. not needed

here comes the chicken .. seasoned with smokehouse maple ( McCormick's )

That looks like some pretty damn good chili you made there. Looks pretty well like a stick to your ribs type of meal then go sit in the recliner and take a nap to work it off. Points to you.

My pot is hickory stained.. lol.. The chili really took on smoke . Having the meat in there in a thin layer by itself helped. Got to remember my sour cream today. watching football today mostly . Lions on later tonight.

Thanks John ... seems chili and soups and beans are always good the next day .. thanks for the points as well..when you slice up sausage in chili, it absorbs the juices and soaks in all the chili flavor
