- In a large stockpot or dutch oven, cook bacon over medium high heat until just brown and crispy. Remove bacon and set aside. Add onion to hot bacon grease, cook for 1-2 minutes, then add beef. Using a spatula, stir and chop beef into crumbles.
- When beef begins to brown add tomato paste, garlic, and seasoning. Cook, stirring constantly, until beef is fully cooked and garlic and seasoning have released their aroma.
- Add diced tomatoes (with liquid), broth, and beans and bring to a low boil. Simmer for 20 minutes adding more stock as needed for a not-too-thick consistency. Taste and adjust seasoning by adding salt, pepper, or hot sauce.
- While chili is simmering, cook french fries according to package instructions. We like crinkle cut fries baked in the oven.
Pile fries onto a plate or into a paper lined basket. Ladle chili on top and drizzle with warm Stonewall Kitchen Queso Dip. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy
