½ lb. ground (hamburger) beef
2 slices bacon
½ onion, chopped
¼ cup jalapeno, sliced
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1 cup cactus, chopped, with serrano peppers
1 can whole tomatoes
1 can pinto beans with jalapenos
1 handful baby carrots, quartered
4 potatoes, chopped
1 can corn
¼ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder
lime juice (to taste)
Tabasco sauce (to taste)

Cook hamburger with onion, garlic, jalapenos, and cactus. Drain. Cook bacon in sauce pan, add to hamburger mixture. Not, too crispy, it should still be fatty-white. In large stockpan, combine all ingredients and cook for 1 hour, or until potatoes and carrots are tender. Stir occasionally. Add Tabasco and lime juice to taste.
