A Mild Sweet & Smokey Chili

Well the picture of the finished product turned out blurry so my pic of ingredients will have to do! :0(

This is a favorite of mine, but one that I don't make often enough because my husband prefers my own chili recipe better.

The mildness comes from using tomato soup instead of tomato juice and of course the smokey flavor is from the bacon with a bit of brown sugar added. Yumm-o!
Throw together a pan of cornbread topped with melted butter and enjoy!

Sweet & Smokey Chili

1 lb. bacon
2 lbs. ground beef
2 - 16 oz. cans butter beans
2 - 16 oz. cans kidney beans
2 - 16oz. cans pork n beans
2 cans tomato soup
1 cup water
1 onion, chopped
1 cup ketchup
1 tbsp. prepared mustard
6 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. brown sugar

Cut bacon slab into 1-inch strips, pull apart & fry and then drain grease.
Cook beef & onion and drain.
Toss beef, onion & bacon in large stock pot.
Add rest of ingredients and simmer 1 hour.
