This is a chili I've been making every year during football season since I was 10. Depending on the year, the heat of the chili changed. It all depends on the people I was serving. I totally made up this chili recipe as a kid, putting in it what I thought would taste good. Little has been added or changed throughout the years. It is requested by family and friends that I make this chili at least 4 times during the season. I've never had a name for it, but at one time, when it was its hottest ever, we termed it "Liquid Evil." Figured "Touchdown Chili" is good enough for now. As you'll be able to tell from the recipe, it makes about 8 quarts. A bit of a secret: I serve a piece or two of chocolate with the chili. Have never found anything better to sooth a scortched tongue.

Ingredients

Directions

Add the spices and the liquid ingredients (beer, tequila, whiskey, tomato past and sauce) to an 8 quart pot. Slowly bring to a boil. 

Dice the bacon and fry until softened and the fat begins to render. Add the bacon and the bacon fat to the pot. Brown the Chorizo, sausage and chuck in a large pan, drain and add to the pot. Slowly bring to a boil again. 

For the peppers, remove the caps and ends, halve lengthwise and slice about 1/4 inch thick. Peal and crush the garlic cloves. Drain the beans. Dice the onions, then add the peppers, garlic, beans and onion to the pot. Reduce the heat, and slowly rise to, once again, bring to a slow boil, with a the lid only partially convering the pot. Taste adjust salt and pepper if neccessary. 

After about an hour, in a double boiler, melt the chocolate then add to the pot. Again, bring to a slow boil. This time, reduce to head to a simmer and let cook for another 3 hours. 

I serve plain or over rice, with chocolate treats to ease the heat.
