Well it is very cold outside — even in Atlanta, Georgia. When it’s cold — it’s time for one of our favorite household recipes which is Bacon, Black-Bean Chili. If you happen to be a chili fan, this is a recipe you’ll love. I usually add some extra jalapeno and every once in a while, I’ll inlcude smoked brisket as the meat.
This is a recipe by Michael Symon from the Food Network Magazine. A good friend of mine, Kyle, made a similar version of this last year with Guinness Beer ice cream topped with chocolate-covered bacon. It was incredible! Must give this a try today.
Happy Independence Day! Enjoy your freedom with a side of bacon!
If you don’t have it on your calendar, please make note — today, Saturday, August 31st, is International Bacon Day. This means you are obligated to eat some bacon at some point today. Try yourself some bacon jam, bacon chocolate, or even some candied bacon. Here some great examples from BaconToday.com.
