Many years ago I had a recipe for "Mayetta's Chili"; so different and so good. Does anyone else out there have it, too?

Do you still have it? My Mother gave it to me many many years ago and it has since been lost in obscurity. However, I do remember it had 12 strips of bacon and Italian sausage. I believe she cut it out of the newspaper, probably The Washington Post. If you have it please send it to me.
