To roast chilies:


Cut tops off chilies, split in half and deseed.


Smush flat skin side up on a foil lined baking sheet.


Broil a few inches from heat until blackened and blistered.


Place, carefully, into a plastic bag.


Seal bag to allow peppers to steam for 20 minutes.


Remove from bag and peel off skin.


Chop.


To make chili:


In large dutch oven brown beef, bacon, onion, and garlic.


Drain off fat.


Reduce heat.


Add beans and chopped chilies.


Add 2 cans of tomatoes, undrained as well as can of sauce.


If you like chunky chili, add the additional can of diced tomatoes.


If you like it saucier (I'm a saucy girl)..puree the last can in a blender and then add.


Add chili powder to taste.


Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered with lid.


This transfers well to crock pot.


Top with shredded cheese, green onions, sour cream...and serve with Cheddar Jalapeno cornbread.


**I used special chili powder from the El Paso Chili Co.

Notes

If we have a Christmas recipe contest I will enter this in it...just got to get it down now in writing before I forget. This would make a great night before Xmas meal served with some jalapeno cornbread!

I can find the Glen Muir Organic canned tomatoes at Kroger in the health food section. They are expensive ($2/can) but so worth it for the fire roasted taste. I use it in all my Tex Mex recipes and even some of the Italian.
