Combine the ground beef, chili powder, garlic, hot sauce, seasoning salt, beef base, cumin, pepper, onion and 1 cup water in a heavy-bottomed 4-quart stockpot and mix well. Cook the chili over medium-high heat until the ground beef is cooked, about 30 minutes. Whisk in the tomato paste, making sure to blend it into the chili well. Simmer until thickened and the tomato flavor is incorporated, about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and serve over burgers!
