STOVE TOP COOKING
Mince the garlic clovces, dice the onion, add them to a small dish, and set them aside.
Next, chop the bell peppers, slice the jalapeno, add those to a medium sized dish, and set them aside.
Now, dice up the bacon into tiny pieces.
Once the bacon is diced, take out a large pot, turn the heat up to medium-high, and add the bacon to the pot.
Now use a wooden spatula to intermitently work the bacon around the pot until it’s browned.
When it starts to turn golden burn, add the onions and the garlic, and cook them until the onions become soft and translucent, and the garlic becomes fragrant.
Once that happens, add the peppers, and cook them until browned and soft.
Next, add the ground beef, and break it down into the other ingredients.
Now add the bone broth, and continue working the beef into the other ingredients with youre spatula until it’s browned all the way through.
When that happens, add the tomato sauce, the diced tomatoes & green chilies, & the tomato paste.
Now mix those until they’re well combined with the other ingredients.
At this point, we can add all of the spices, so we’re going to add the hot sauce, chili powder, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, & pepper.
Then we’re going to work those into the other ingredients, and bring our chili up to a boil.
Once it starts boiling, we’re going to turn down the heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer the chili for 15-20 minutes.
Cook the bacon and the ground beef first before adding them to the pot.
Next, strain the bacon and beef of any excess grease/oil before adding them to the crockpot.
Once you’ve added those to the crockpot, just add the rest of the ingredients.
Then cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours.
INSTANT POT COOKING:
Use the sauté function on the Instant Pot to brown all of the ingredients.
Follow the same browning steps found above in the “Stove Top” option.
Then you can add the tomato components, as well as the spices.
Mix everything up, and close the lid.
Set the Instant Pot on the “Meat/Stew” setting and cook.
30-35 Minute later the chili will be done.
