4 slices of uncured bacon
16oz ground elk
1tbsp chili powder
3 cloves of garlic
1 c chopped onion
1 c chopped celery
1 c chopped carrots
40oz canned diced tomatoes and green chiles
1c. shredded taco cheese
brown the elk in small batches within the bacon grease. (it's very lean so the bacon keeps it from drying out) Add garlic and chili powder.
Reserve the drippings and set aside.
Using the drippings, saute the onion, celery and carrot until just tender, 5-7 minutes.
Add the canned tomatoes and chili, along with the browned beef and bring to a boil, before allowing to simmer for 40 minutes.
Serve in bowls with 1/4c cheese, some greek yogurt or sour cream, and guacamole if you prefer.
