Award Winning Chili (WON Spiciest)
1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
1 med onion diced
2 tsp diced garlic
2 cans chili beans
1 can tomatoes with green chili's
1 can green chili's
3 small cans Rotel (R) tomato sauce (mild)
1 1/2 cup pace picante sauce
2 heaping Tbsp chili seasoning
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
1 can tomato paste
1/4 c cocoa powder
4 tsp liquid smoke (use 1/2 when cooking the ground beef and onions together)
8 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 pkg bacon bits
1 cup brown sugar
S & P to taste
Put ground beef, onions, garlic, Worcestershire, S & P, and 2 tsp liquid smoke in pot for chili. Brown beef, and cook onions until translucent. Cook down until most liquid has cooked off. Add all of the other ingredients stirring occasionally to blend together. Place on simmer and let simmer anywhere between 30 min or later. Great to transfer to a crock pot on low or keep warm once it's all heated through. The longer it simmers the more the flavors marry each other and meld together better.
