In a large bowl, combine the tomato paste, ketchup, chili powder, Worcestershire, paprika, garlic powder, salt, vinegar, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Stir well.
Add the ground beef and 3 cups water to a large stockpot. Use a gloved hand to break up the beef. Bring to a simmer.
Add the tomato paste mixture and another 3 cups water; stir to fully incorporate. Simmer for 1 hour, skimming off the excess fat that rises to the surface.
