Submitted by: admin on April 10, 2020

6 servings


½ pound thick-cut bacon, chopped
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 ½ pounds ground beef
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon ground cumin
3 (15.5 ounce) cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5 ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
2 cups water
¼ cup chili powder
1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 dash hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco®), or to taste (optional)


Step 1
Cook bacon and onion together in a large pot over medium heat until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ground beef, garlic and cumin to the pot; cook and stir until the beef is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes.

Step 2
Stir kidney beans, diced tomatoes, water, chili powder, liquid smoke, salt, black pepper, and hot pepper sauce into the beef mixture; bring to a simmer and cook until thick, about 1 hour. Skim excess grease if desired.
