How to Make Chili Liver


  • 1In a 12-inch skillet, cook bacon until crisp. (Do not drain off the bacon grease.)
  • 2Remove bacon from skillet; drain on paper towels, and set aside.
  • 3Dust the liver with flour (on both sides), then season with salt and pepper.
  • 4Lightly brown the liver in bacon drippings. (It doesn't take long for the liver to brown, so keep an eye on it while it's cooking. Also, you will need to add a bit of shortening to the skillet while it's cooking).
  • 5When done frying the liver, set the liver aside on a plate, then add the soup and chili sauce (or ketchup) to the skillet. Mix the soup and chili sauce together.
  • 6Add the liver back to the skillet, and stir to mix the soup and liver together.
  • 7Tear the cooked bacon into pieces, and add that to the skillet as well.
  • 8Cover the skillet, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until liver is tender. Stir occasionally.
