  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 lb Hot Sausage
  • 5 slices Bacon
  • 2 stalks Celery
  • 1/2 of a White Onion small
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 of a Red Pepper
  • 1/2 of a Green Pepper
  • 14.5 oz can Diced Tomatoes (796 ml)
  • 6 oz can Tomato Paste (156 ml)
  • 1 Tbsp Cumin
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tsp Paprika
  • 1 Tsp Oregano
  • 1 Tsp Salt


  • First fry the bacon until crispy and set aside for later. Brown the ground beef and sausage together next over medium-high heat in a large pot or skillet. 
  • Drain the fat from pot and add the diced onion and celery, minced garlic and chopped peppers to the pot. Let cook while stiring for 4 - 5 mins, then add the spices. 
  • Add the canned diced tomatoes and let simmer for 20 minutes, stiring a few times throughout. Next add the tomato paste to the pot and stir until it's fully combined.  Reduce to low heat and simmer uncovered for another 15 - 20 minutes or until chili reaches desired thickness. Then chop up the bacon and add to the chili before serving.
