Man, this looks gooooooood!
Spinach and Bacon Chili
Makes about 6 cups (4 servings)
- 4 strips uncooked bacon
- 30 ounces (2 cans) home-cooked or canned, no-salt-added kidney or pinto beans
- 12 ounces lean ground beef
- 15 ounces (1 can) no-salt-added crushed or diced tomatoes, such as Muir Glen Fire-Roasted brand
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon chili powder, preferably ancho
- 5 to 8 ounces fresh baby spinach
- 1 cup hot water
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Line a plate with a few layers of paper towels.
- Place the bacon in a large, deep saute pan. Cook over medium heat until browned and crisp, then transfer to the paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
- Meanwhile, if you’re using canned beans, rinse and drain them.
- Add the ground beef to the pan; cook for a few minutes just until no trace of pink remains. Transfer to a colander to drain. Wipe out the pan and return it to medium heat. Return the ground beef to the pan.
- Crumble the bacon into the pan, then add the tomatoes and their juices, the drained beans, onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder, stirring to incorporate. Increase the heat to medium-high; once the mixture comes to a boil, add the spinach (to taste) and the hot water. Stir until the spinach begins to wilt.
- Return the chili to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring once or twice.

It’s called “The Bacon Explosion“!
The bacon-blogosphere is completely buzzing about it! “The New York Times” even ran a story about it in today’s paper.
This Frankenstein meat log was created by the guys at my new favorite blog – bbqaddicts.com
I can not be considered a serious source of bacon news if I didn’t share this!
WARNING: Just reading the article could cause heart disease.
