I've made a lot of chili in my time and this one it at the top of the list.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add the oil & butter to a large stockpot over high heat. Add the bell pepper, jalapeno, celery, and onions. Sprinkle with salt and cook until tender, about 5 minutes (if they start to look dry then put in a slash of water). Add the garlic and kale, sauté 1 minute longer.
  2. Add in the ground beef and break it up a bit, cook until the meat looks done (about 7 to 10 minutes).
  3. Add in the chili powder, cayenne, coriander, cumin, granulated garlic, dehydrated onion, paprika, bay leaf and black pepper - cook about 1 minute.
  4. Add in the enchilada sauce and tomato paste, stir and cook 2 minutes. Stir in the 4 cups of water, kidney and pinto beans (with their juice!); lower the heat and simmer, about 2 hours.
