DIRECTIONS

  • Add the olive oil to a large soup pot and place it over medium-high heat for two minutes. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the ground beef to the pot. Break it apart with a wooden spoon. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes, until the beef is browned, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the chili powder, cumin, sugar, tomato paste, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and optional cayenne. Stir until well combined.
  • Add the broth, diced tomatoes (with their juice), drained beans, and tomato sauce. Stir well.
  • Bring the liquid to a low boil. Then, reduce the heat (low to medium-low). Gently simmer the chili uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove the pot from the heat. Let the chili rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
