Put it all together
- I use ground chuck or very lean ground beef for my chili. Also, I prefer a thicker chili. So if you would like to thin it out some, just add a little more water until the consistency is what you would like.
2. Fry bacon in a skillet until done. Drain grease and set aside.
3. Cut and dice sausage, add to skillet and cook over medium heat until done. About 5 minutes.
4. Add the ground chuck to the pot. Break it apart with a wooden spoon. Cook for 6-7 minutes, until the beef is browned, stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet and drain grease.
5. In small bowl add chili powder, garlic powder, ground paprika, ground black pepper, onion powder, salt, and ground cayenne. Stir until combined. Set aside.
6. In large pot, add ground chuck, sausage, and bacon (chopped), onion, bell pepper, tomatoes, kidney beans, tomato paste, and water.
7. Add the bowl of seasoning. Stir and combine.
8. Bring the liquid to a low boil. Then, reduce the heat (low to medium-low) to gently simmer the chili, covered, for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
