Three Bean Chili Con Carne
In a large fry pan over high heat brown meat in small batches in bacon fat. Use a slotted spoon to transfer browned meat to a bowl. Set aside.
In a large saucepot heat oil and sauté onion, garlic and Poblano chili until onions are translucent and pepper is soft. Add browned meat with remaining ingredients except for beans, cilantro and lime juice. Simmer for at least 2 ½ hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
Add beans and continue to cook for another 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Remove cinnamon stick and bay leaves before serving.
Serve sour cream, cilantro, grated cheddar cheese and lime wedges to the side as garnish.
