3 cans chili beans, undrained
  • 2 14 oz stewed tomatoes
  • 8 pieces of crispy bacon crumbled
  • 2 large jalapeños minced
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 lb ground beef cooked
  • 2 Tbsp Liquid Smoke
  • 3-4 Tbsp brown sugar depending on your taste
  • Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt

  1. In a non-stick skillet, brown bacon.
  2. Removed bacon and sauté jalapeños, garlic and onion in a small amount of bacon grease.
  3. Meanwhile, combine undrained beans and tomatoes in a large pot or crockpot. Use an immersion blender to pulse a few times in the pot. Makes for a thicker creamy chili.
  4. When veggies are done, cook the ground beef in the same skillet.
  5. Add bacon, sautéed veggies and beef to pot.
  6. Add liquid smoke and brown sugar. Stir all to combine.
  7. If using stove-top, bring to a simmer for 20-30 mins. If using a crockpot, cook on low for up to 5-6 hours.
  8. Serve with a dollop of Chobani Greek Yogurt, shredded cheese and corn bread
