Step 1

Start off by getting your veggies ready first. Roughly chop the green pepper, removing the seeds along with the celery.

Step 2

Now seed a jalapeno, remember the seeds and membrane give the heat so remove more for lower heat less for higher heat chili. Now peel and dice the onion.

Step 3

In an iron pan on the stove you’ll want to cook off the bacon, once done remove and drain on a paper towel. Now cook the veggies in the fat for about 5 mins or till soft and translucent.


drain as much of the left over fat off, now cook the ground beef in the same pan, use the back of a spatula to keep breaking the meat down while it fully cooks.

Step 4
Measure and mix all the spices in a small bowl.
Step 5

Now it’s time to put everything together in our slow cooker aka crockpot. Combine the beef consomme or beef stock with the tomato paste stir together.


Add the Worcestershire sauce along with your spices and blend all that together. Taste and adjust if needed.


Add the tomatoes with the juice from the cans, add the beef and veggies, chop and add the bacon.

Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours!
