Smoky Beef and Bacon Chili

I’ve always loved anything to do with the great outdoors and outdoor living.  As a result, you will often find me standing over the grill, cooking for my family.  I often enjoy sharing grilling recipes, but given this brutal Chicago winter, I imagine none of you are thinking about firing up the grill.  So here is a recipe that will keep you toasty warm during these cold winter months.  With bacon, fire-roasted tomatoes, and smoky paprika, what’s not to love?  Enjoy!

Smoky Beef Bacon Chili

Smoky Beef and Bacon Chili

Recipe Time:  1 Hour, 15 Minutes

Yield:  6 servings

Ingredients

2 slices thick-cut bacon, finely chopped

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 large garlic clove, minced

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 1/2 teaspoons sweet smoked Spanish paprika (pimentón dulce – Find at well-stocked grocery stores and from spanishtable.com.)

1/2 teaspoon to 1 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

About 1 tsp. salt

1 can (14.5 oz.) crushed fire-roasted tomatoes or regular crushed tomatoes

1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce

1 cup flavorful, medium-bodied beer, such as Anchor Steam

1 teaspoon Worcestershire

1 can (14.5 oz.) pinto beans, drained

Sour cream, sliced green onions, and/or coarsely shredded cheddar cheese for topping

Directions

In a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat, cook bacon, stirring until it just begins to brown, about 4 minutes. Add onion, lower heat to medium, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, 4 to 7 minutes. Uncover pan, stir in garlic, and cook 1 minute.

Increase heat to medium-high and add ground beef; break it up with a wooden spoon and stir gently until it loses its raw color, 7 minutes. Stir in spices and 1 tsp. salt and cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, beer, and Worcestershire and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover partially, and cook 30 minutes.

Add beans and cook 10 minutes, uncovered. Season to taste with salt. Serve warm, with toppings on the side.
