Crockpot Bacon Chili with Coffee Recipe


This post was written by me through an activation with HireInfluence on behalf of Community Coffee. Although I received compensation for participating in the campaign, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I don’t know what September means to you but in Alabama it means football. I was born into a college football family and I have passed it to my own children. I am sure most of them could say Roll Tide before they could walk. We also watch pro ball because football is like a religion down here. You all know that I more of a hockey fan but I can’t deny my roots. My favorite part of football season is tailgate parties! I love to eat and tailgate parties are always full of good food and good friends. I was asked to talk about my tailgate traditions and sent a lovely bunch of coffee from Community Coffee. I credit them with saving me by keeping me awake during the back to school rush. Community Coffee is available for purchase at grocery stores throughout the Southeast region of the US and you can also find it online at CommunityCoffee.com. You can also check out Community Coffee on Facebook and Twitter.

I wanted to try something new with my go to recipes to bring to parties so I heard about adding coffee and bacon to chili from one of my mom groups. I mean chili=good, coffee=magic, and bacon=forever right? It was bound to be amazing. I couldn’t find a good recipe online though so I decided to wing it. I have to admit that my first batch was super spicy so only my husband liked it. I am going to use less jalapeno. This is going to be my new favorite tailgate recipe, Crockpot Bacon Chili with Coffee. Easy to make and quick to be eaten.

1 onion, finely diced

1 bell pepper, diced

1 small jalapeno, diced

Kosher salt, to taste

Pepper, to taste

1 can of roasted tomatoes (14 oz, you can find the kind with chilies & peppers in it which adds even more flavor)

Use bacon grease to saute onion, jalapeno, and bell pepper. Add to crock pot.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the crockpot and cook on high 4 hours or low 8 hours. More water can be added if it seems dry but 8 oz worked well for me.
