Beef & Bacon Chili (Low Carb)

  • 8 thick or 12 thin slices of bacon
  • 2 diced red bell peppers
  • 1 Tbsp minced or jar garlic
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 Tsp cocoa
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp ancho chile pepper powder or Mexican-style chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne (or more to taste)
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 can roasted diced tomatoes (I used a 14.5 oz can because I wanted it really thick, but I would totally use 28 oz can if I was looking to make it more soupy)
  • ¾ cup beef broth (I left this out make it thicker)

  1. Dice bacon and cook until crisp
  2. Add peppers and garlic
  3. Add ground beef, cocoa, garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, cayenne, cumin
  4. Cook until beef is browned.  Drain. 
  5. Add diced tomatoes and broth and heat through. 
  6. Top with your favorite toppings.
I LOVE how easy this recipe is and how easy it is to double or triple to make a big batch for my big family.
