Breakfast Chili

This is a different take on chili. Using some breakfast ingredients like bacon and maple sausage, it gives a different vibe to chili.

I encourage you to give it a try.

Breakfast Chili

1 pound bacon
2 red bell peppers, finely chopped
2 green bell peppers finely chopped
3 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cans pinto beans, drained
1 cans black beans, drained
2 cans kidney beans, drained
4 cans diced tomatoes, drained
1 can corn, drained
1 can tomato paste
1 pound ground beef
1 pound maple sausage

4 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon garlic powder
3 beef bouillon cubes

Chop and cook the bacon until crisp. Finely chop all the veggies. Add them to the bacon. Sauté together until the grease is absorbed into the veggies.

While that’s happening, put all the canned goods into the Crock Pot along with all the spices. Use 4-5 cans of beans of your choosing in total. When the veggies and bacon are looking good, add them to the Crock Pot with your beans, tomatoes and, spices.

Now cook up your maple sausage and your ground beef. Get it all browned then add it to the Crock Pot. Stir it all together.

Cook on low for 8 hours. Stir it enough to make sure nothing sticks to the sides and burns. That’s usually about 1 time per hour.

If you want spicy, dice a few jalapeños or a couple habaneros and add them in with your veggies. Otherwise it’s a mild chili with a bacon & breakfast sausage vibe.
