Bacon and pineapple pair very well together. Now, any time I see bacon in a recipe, I’m half-inclined to add pineapple too (or vice versa). Chili was a no-brainer. Of course pineapple and bacon would be great in chili! This recipe packs quite a bit of punch for not having any nightshades in it, even if you take the AIP option and omit the black pepper.
