Three Meat Chili

I have been working on a good chili recipe for a while.  There is just something satisfying about all the meat and the Mexican spices.  I grew up eating chili with beans and that was a  hard habit to break.  Well, I think the bacon and beer in this recipe help break the habit!  I love Chilies in Adobo Sauce.  It brings a deep smokey HEAT to the chili.  Use it sparingly, a little goes a long way.
Be sure that you make my Southern Style Buttermilk “Corn” Bread to go with this yummy chili.
This Three Meat Chili can be cooked on top of stove or it can simmer in the Crock Pot.  This recipe is also a great way to use leftover roast.
I am working on a Chili Seasoning that you can mix up in a large batch ahead of time and just measure out how much you need for the recipe. That is coming up soon!

Three Meat Chili

Serves 8; 8 Net Carbs per serving
1-1/2 pounds leftover roast or ground pork
1 lb ground beef
5 thick strips of bacon, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
2-3 tbsp chopped garlic
1 jalapeno, diced finely
28 oz diced tomatoes
1 cup crushed tomatoes
½ cup Grain free beer (Like Redbridge)
2 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp paprika
½ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ cup plus 1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper


Brown beef (and pork) in a large pot.  Drain and set aside. In same pot, cook bacon, onions, and bell pepper for about 8-10 minutes until vegetables are soft and bacon is crisp and its fat is rendered.   Add garlic and jalapeno and cook for an additional minute. Add tomatoes and spices, including Adobo sauce and beer. (If using leftover roast, add now).
Simmer on low heat for at least 1 hour or cook in crock pot on low 4-5 hours. Taste for salt.

Serve with shredded cheese and REAL sour cream and Corn Bread.

    Wow! This chilli sounds great. I love trying new recipes that are different, not the same old thing.
    I am going to make this chilli and your corn bread tonight for dinner.

    This sounds delicious! I would like to make this this weekend. However, I can’t buy beer in a unit smaller than a case where I live. Is there something I can substitute for the beer? Thanks!

      Courtney, you can just omit it and add water if you need more liquid. The beer just gives it a nice depth of flavor if you have it! Enjoy!
