Add a hit of smokiness to chili with the help of a few strips of thick-cut bacon. We suggest sour cream, cheese and onions for a topping, but a handful of crushed tortilla chips wouldn’t be bad either.

Tips for Bacon, Ground Beef, and Pork

Instructions

  1. 1Cook bacon in a large pot over medium-high heat until it just begins to brown, about 4 minutes. Drain off half of the fat. Add onion and garlic, lower heat to medium-low, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. 2Increase heat to medium-high and add ground beef and spices; break it up with a wooden spoon and stir gently until no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Add salt, tomatoes, tomato paste, and beans and bring to a boil. If mixture seems too thick, add about 1/3 cup water. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook to let flavors meld, about 15 minutes.
  3. 3Serve bowls with dollops of sour cream and a sprinkle of green onions and cheese.
