Smokey Bacon Chili

1.  Go make your grocery list of all the ingredients listed in this recipe, actually I will help you, here they are:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 6 slices of bacon, cubed
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 14 ounces of fire roasted tomatoes
  • 8 ounces of tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 2 Tsp cumin
  • 1 Tsp cayenne
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 3 Sweet potatoes, AT A MINIMUM haha

2.  Get in your car, first stop, local coffee shop (cause they are way better than Starbucks, keep it local people) to get your favorite Paleo beverage.  My recommendation is a Venti Americano.

3.  Next stop, farmers market if possible, if not wherever you buy your grubs, buy it and rush home

4.  Cook the recipe like so:

  • Cook bacon
  • Add veggies
  • Add meat and spices
  • Add tomato stuff
  • Stir and eat

5.  The above is just a cliff notes version, I can not be held responsible if you follow those and it doesn’t work haha.
