One of the Tex-Mex cuisine staples, chilies are definitely worthy of a try even if you’re not an American. This chili uses beef and bacon, and it’s spiced up with jalapeno, red chili paste, and chipotle powder so it is quite fiery. But, to balance things, we’ve topped it with some shredded Cheddar and served it with some topped sour cream.
