Directions See How It's Made
- Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl.
- Stir well to combine, using a wooden spoon.
- Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
- Heat the oil in a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat.
- Add meat and stir with a long handled wooden spoon to break up the pieces.
- Cook, stirring, until the meat is brown and cooked through; about 5 minutes.
- Add onion, garlic, chili powder, 2 tsp Baby Bam, salt, cumin and pepper and cook, stirring, until soft, about 4 minutes.
- Put the whole tomatoes in a large mixing bowl and squeeze them with your hands to break them into pieces.
- Add the squeezed tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, and water to the pot.
- Stir well and bring to a boil; lower the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes stirring occasionally to prevent the chili from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
- Using oven mitts or pot holders, remove the pot from the heat.
- ladle the chili into bowls, and serve.
