  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced (adjust according to your spice preference)
  • 2 cans (14 ounces each) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 2 cups beef broth (can substitute with vegetable broth for a vegetarian option)
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional toppings: shredded cheese, sour cream, diced avocado, chopped green onions, or fresh cilantro

Note: Feel free to adjust the quantities and types of beans, as well as the spice levels, to suit your preferences.


Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Heat a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the ground beef and cook until browned, breaking it up into crumbles as it cooks. Drain any excess grease if necessary.
  2. Add the diced onion, minced garlic, bell pepper, and jalapeño pepper to the pot. Sauté until the vegetables are tender and fragrant, usually around 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano, salt, and black pepper. Cook for another minute to toast the spices and enhance their flavors.
  4. Add the diced tomatoes (with their juices), tomato paste, drained kidney beans, drained black beans, and beef broth to the pot. Stir everything together until well combined.
  5. Bring the chili to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let it simmer for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. However, for even more depth of flavor, you can simmer it for up to 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  6. After the simmering time, taste the chili and adjust the seasoning as needed, adding more salt, chili powder, or spices according to your preference.
  7. Serve the chili hot in bowls. Top it with your choice of shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream, diced avocado, chopped green onions, or fresh cilantro for an added burst of flavor and texture.
  8. Pair the chili with warm cornbread, crusty bread, or your favorite side dish for a complete and satisfying meal.
