This is our family's favorite chili, and not just because it has bacon in it. It's not too spicy for the kids but still has enough spice and flavor for the adults. It's so hearty and tastes so good, you won't even notice there are no beans in it.
Otto's Cassava Flour is the secret ingredient that gives this stew a thick base while keeping it grain- and gluten-free. We prefer to cook this in the Instant Pot because it's done in an hour, but this is also a great slow-cooker recipe.
