Chipotle Bacon Jam with Cream Cheese and Crostini

This dish was the first place winner at our annual Bacon cook-off at work!  It’s quite delicious.

20 oz of cooked, crumbled bacon (weight after cooking)
8 cloves of garlic, minced
1 chopped onion
8 chipotles en adobo (or to taste, depending on your tolerence for heat)
1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
1/2 tablespoon allspice
3 tablespoons ground chocolate
3 cups of brewed coffee
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
Black pepper to taste

Cook the onion and garlic in two tablespoons of bacon fat or oil for a couple of minutes. Add the remaining ingredients. Simmer on low for two hours, stirring occasionally. If jam starts to get dry, add water, 1/4 cup at a time.

Serve warm over cream cheese accompanied by crostini.  This would also make incredibly decadent and delicious sliders – it smells like pulled pork while it’s cooking.   Mmmmmmmm.
