I can't resist the lure of bacon, especially when it comes to using it as a flavor base for stew and chili. Daniel said the best chili he's ever made came from an LA Times recipe entitled "Bowl of Red Chili". The recipe serves 20 to 24, which seems like a lot, but when I mentioned that I bet it froze well, he said, "It did!" It's raining here and a perfect day to make chili. But I don't want to leave the house. When it stops raining, I will make a trip to the store and cook up a batch for another rainy day.
