  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • ½ cup white onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 28 ounces canned fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp basil
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper, optional
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste


  • First, press sauté on Ninja Foodi. Add ground beef, chopped bacon, and chopped onion to pot.
  • Sauté on high for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning and to break apart ground beef.
  • Press cancel. Drain excess grease from pot.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to the pot. Stir to combine.
  • Secure lid and move top valve to sealing. Pressure cook on high for 10 minutes.
  • Once timer goes off, carefully move top valve to venting to release pressure manually.
  • Finally, ladle chili into bowls and serve with desired toppings.


  • Any ground meat works!  Ground chicken, pork, and turkey are all great options.
  • This chili is between mild and medium.  See blog post above for ideas to make it more or less spicy.
  • Feel free to adjust seasonings and spices to suit your taste.
  • Once timer goes off, use an oven mitt to carefully push valve to venting.  The steam is very hot!
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • Freeze for up to 1 month if needed.
