Do you have a really big skillet? If not, you are going to want to go buy one so you can make this chili right away.
If you are not convinced that you need a 14-inch skillet, I understand. However, I intend to convince you to make this chili. It's the best chili I've ever had, and it's a complete and colorful one-pot meal. If you didn't just go by a huge skillet and/or don't need to feed a bunch of people, you can halve the recipe and make it in a normal-sized pan.
Why is this the best chili ever? Well, because bacon. And sweet potatoes. And all the fresh things on top that make this the perfect comfort food to carry you from winter into spring.
