  1. In a covered pot, cook bacon over medium heat until just beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Add beef, onion, garlic, paprika, cumin, oregano, cayenne and 1¼ tsp. salt. Cook stirring occasionally and breaking up meat with the side of the spoon, about 10 minutes. Stir in water, masa and vinegar, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid thickens about 20 minutes. If chili is dry, add a bit of water to make it soupy again. Serve with bowls of toppings and corn bread or tortilla chips.
