1/2 lb. of Usinger's applewood smoked bacon
2 1/2 pounds of ground chuck
1 quart of tomato juice
1 C. cooked white minute rice
1 medium onion minced
1 medium pepper chopped/minced
1 1/2 C. chili powder
1 1/2 cans of chili beans in sauce
2 cans of diced tomatoes
Cook the ground chuck in a skillet and drain. Fry up the bacon in a skillet and drain. Pour the tomato juice into a large pot and heat on medium. Add the diced tomatoes, onion, pepper and chili powder. Once the mixture is heated, add in the cooked bacon and ground chuck and stir. Finally, add the rice to thicken. Let the entire mixture simmer for about 20 minutes and serve. It may also be made in a large crock pot if that's more convenient.
