I didn't feel like making bacon and hearing my older girl complain. I don't know where I went wrong!! She doesn't like bacon. The only way she will eat bacon is in my corn and bacon waffles - she LOVES them.

Priceless!
You may need to start small, turn her on to another breakfast meat, like sausage links or patties, maybe ham steaks
Bacon wasn't always one of my favorite meats. Now look at me

So, Pacanis' Personal Pigskin Challenge had my Brownies playing the Texans... and getting their butt kicked. And today's dinner was "authentic" TX chili con carne, the state dish of Texas. At least this was as authentic as I could research.
Chili con carne, chili peppers with meat, and that's what I made. No tomato products at all, I made a chili paste with peppers, cumin, salt, pepper and a little water and added it to my meat (ribeye steak and smoked pulled pork) along with beef stock, water, beer and a couple other items
I said a while back that I may never make chili with beans again, I haven't, and I'm saying now, I may never make chili again with tomato products... until my team plays Cincinnati again anyway

Very tasty and intense.
Texas Red. Not to be confused with the other Texas Red, sulforhodamine 101 acid chloride

Where do you live? The winds are out of the south today. Maybe you can smell it!

Thanks I've been smelling this chili since 8:30 this morning, Dawg.

Maybe I DID smell it! We had some pretty strong winds today, starting about 9:30 or so!

Thought I detected something yummy!

That really looks good. I'll bet it tastes great too. It's cool that your personal football challenge has turned you on to a chili you like better than what you have been making.

I make a chili recipe based on Wick Fowler's championship winner. I started by buying his seasoning mix and took it from there.

I think most chili recipes contain way way too much tomato. I use 8 ounces of tomato sauce in a recipe with two pounds of meat. While it's probably not authentic, I like it that way.

That said, I'd bet beans were a part of early chili recipes. They were common fare as they were cheap protein that kept well dried. It makes sense to me that cooks added beans to chili to stretch the pot to feed more people longer. Or, to look at it the other way around, perhaps chili was born out of ways to doctor up a bean dish. A pot of the same old beans with some beef, chile peppers and other seasonings added were probably an immediate hit.

Pardon my sermon, I must be channeling the Chief...
