Amazing classic Chili made with bacon, ground beef, vegetables, beans, and tasty combination of spices to make chili seasoning.
Prepare ingredients ahead of time by dicing bacon, onion, and peppers.
Preheat a 2.5-3 quart pot over medium heat and add a little bit of oil.
Add diced bacon and cook until browned and fat is rendered.
Add ground beef, season with some salt, and cook, breaking up all the clumps of meat, until it's browned. Take meats out of the pot and set aside.
Add diced onion and bell peppers to the pot and saute until softened. Add diced jalapeno.
Smash and mince garlic and add it to the pot. Saute until garlic is fragrant.
Add meats back to the pot, stir, and add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, beans, and beef broth. Stir well.
Add all the seasoning, stir, set heat to low. Cover with a lid and cook for about 1.5-2 hours, stirring once in a while. Take the lid off half way through and cook the rest of the time uncovered.
