Award winning Hurricane Gale Chili

2 cans diced tomato

1 can tomato paste

2 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp oregano

sea salt (to taste)

1 tbsp celery seed

2 tbsp black pepper

5 tbsp chili powder (or if you aren’t feeling as paleo use a chili seasoning packet)

2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley

2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

2 tbsp fresh chopped basil

3 minced garlic cloves

5 slices of slightly cooked bacon chopped

2 lbs of ground grassfed beef

¾ red onion chopped

2 homegrown jalapenos

add 1-2 yellow or red bell peppers to make it sweeter (we didn’t add this, but I think it would make it better)

Brown ground beef in skillet while cooking bacon in another skillet. Warm the tomatoes in a pot w/all spices and everything else. Dump in ground Beef to the tomato pot when it’s browned. Then cut up bacon when almost fully cooked and dump in. Cook in pot on low, stirring occasionally for 2 hours. You can really eat this after like 20 minutes of all the flavors mixing together, but the longer you let it sit, the flavors come together better I think. Enjoy!
