No-Fail Chili con Carne

This is Giao's awesome, spicy, all-meat, no-beans chili. It's very low in carbs and it is great for lunch or dinner. Also, since it gets better with age, it's great to eat for lunch at work. We finish it off with some grated cheese, fresh, diced onions and a dollop of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt. We also make it in large batches sometimes and freeze it.

-3 lbs lean ground beef
-3 cans chopped tomatos
-1 can water
-2 tb beef bullion
-3 large bay leaves
-2 onions, diced
-1/2 cup chili powder
-3 tb granulated garlic
-1 tb ground cumin
-1 tb cayenne
-1 tb paprika

Brown the beef and the onions in a very large pot. Drain the fat and return the meat and onions to the pot. Add the tomatos, the boullion dissolved in the water and the bell pepper. Stir to combine. Add all of the spices, mix thoroughly and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to very low and simmer for a few hours, stirring every so often, until the chili is thick and not watery. Serve with sour cream (or Fage yogurt), diced red onion and grated cheese.
