First put 4 tablespoons of olive or vegetable oil in a stewing pot.
Place chopped onions and bell peppers in a pot and cook until the onions are translucent.
With a frying pan, put about 1 tablespoon of oil in frying pan, add the meat and cook until the meat is done. Season the meat while it is cooking with garlic, onion powder and black pepper.
Next, drain off any undesired liquid from the frying pan. Add the cooked meat and diced tomatoes to the pot with the onions and bell peppers and let simmer for five minutes.
Add the jar of tomato sauce and the can of tomato paste to the pot. Stir for two minutes.
Add the kidney beans and continue to stir. Add minced garlic, bay leaves, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder (to your desired taste), cilantro, ketchup, barbecue sauce, red pepper flakes, oyster sauce, Worcestershire sauce and black pepper (to your desired taste).
Finally, add the 2 teaspoons of sugar. Stir for one minute. Then let simmer for 20 minutes. Then the chili is DONE!
One optional note: If you would like corn in your chili, it should be added to the pot when you add the kidney beans.
