Aunt Bee's Three Meat Chili

I recently saw a post Aunt Bee's Recipes put together for Rocket City Mom: Tailgating Recipes with Aunt Bee. This is a fantastic collection of football season foods, and definitely worth a read. Everything she included looked fantastic, but the thing that immediately caught my eye was Three Meat Chili. Even just the name sounds amazing.

I clicked through to Aunt Bee's blog straight away and checked out the recipe. It seemed straightforward to make, and had a great combination of ingredients. So with a few minor alterations (based on the ingredients I had) I got right to making this chili.

It was amazing. I think this is THE most delicious chili recipe I have ever tried. I was so happy when the recipe made way more food that just myself and my honey could get though. Aunt Bee is 100 % correct in saying that it tastes even better the next day.

I just chucked all the ingredients in a slow cooker, and left it to do it's thing on low for 8 hours. Nice and easy.
