At the last minute, I decided to enter the Montana Wild West Fest Chili Cook-off on August 14, 2010. I found a recipe on-line and played with it and ended up winning Third Place!

How to Make Award Winning Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towels and drain. Cook beef, onions, and chili seasoning mix, and seasonings in bacon grease until brown (don't drain; this adds more flavor to the chili). Cook together until beef is done.
  2. Stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, bacon, carrots, kidney beans, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper to the beef mixture. Cook for 20 minutes on low-medium heat to blend the flavors.
  3. Notes: Use a white wine that you like to drink; Chardonnay is good.
