This chili tastes remarkably good and can be made for dinner when you are pressed for time. The recipe comes from the beefitswhatfordinner.com website, but I originally saw the recipe in the newpaper. I have made this several times, used whatever beef I had on hand. I've also added more beans and tomatoes to the same quantity of beef, and it still tasted great.
- Ready In:
- 1 lb ground beef, 95% lean
- 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 (14 ounce) can reduced-sodium beef broth
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chilies
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
- chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
- minced green onion (optional)
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the ground beef and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, breaking it into 3/4 inch or so crumbles and stirring occasionally. Drain off the fat.
- Stir in the beans, broth, tomatoes and chili powder, and bring to a boil. (You can hold back some of the broth if you want a thicker chili - it depends on whether you add extra beans or tomatoes. Or just cook it longer to reduce).
- Reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes to develop flavors, stirring occasionally.
- Serve with toppings, as desired.

As written this was OK for us. We thought the chili was way too thin and the sauce didn't have much taste. I added onion powder, minced garlic, tomato sauce and tomato paste and then we enjoyed it more. I also added two cans of black beans and only one heaping tablespoon of chili powder as I don't like it too spicy. This was very easy to make.Reply
I loved that this chili was more soupy then stew like consistency. I wasn't sure about the amount of chili powder, thinking it might be too much, but it was the right amount for me. To me it was just lacking some seasoning, so I added some garlic powder, salt, pepper and onion salt, next time I would add chopped onion to the meat, while browning. I used dark red kidney beans, as thats what I had on hand and it wouldn't change the flavor of the chili sauce. I used Rotel for the tomatoes and peppers mix and did opt to add the cheddar cheese and green onion. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PRMR Tag Game.Reply
