The green tomatoes give this chili extra character.
Saute the onions and garlic in bacon fat. Remove the vegetables, then brown the meat in same skillet. Place the meat, onions and garlic in a covered earthenware pot or casserole and mix in the rest of the ingredients.
Cook in a 300 degrees F oven for 4 hours. If the chili seems too thin, remove the cover and let the chili cook down until thicker.
