  • 6 medium onions, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons bacon fat
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground chuck
  • 1 2-1/2 can red kidney beans
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 10 medium green tomatoes, peeled and coarsely cut
  • 1 cup water


Sauté the onions and garlic in bacon fat. Remove the vegetables, then brown the meat in same skillet. Place the meat, onions and garlic in a covered earthenware pot or casserole and mix in the rest of the ingredients.

Cook in a 300 degrees F oven for 4 hours. If the chili seems too thin, remove the cover and let the chili cook down until thicker.
