DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef, and cook until browned, about 5-8 minutes. Drain off excess fat.
  • To the pot, add all other ingredients except for last three (squash/zucchini, cilantro and epazote leaves). Be sure to include the can liquid when adding the black beans- it's yummy.
  • Bring mixture to a boil, then decrease heat to very low & simmer uncovered for 2-3 hours. Try to mix the chili every 15-30 minutes, especially near the end of the cooking time. Adjust for seasoning near the end as well.
  • Add the squash/zucchini, stir and cook for a further 15-20 minutes, or until the vegetables are cooked through. When done, remove from heat, then stir in the cilantro and epazote leaves.
  • Serve with tortilla chips and top with yummy things like queso fresco, cotija cheese or Mexican crema.
