Ingredients

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 (12 ounce) cans pinto beans (drained and rinsed well)
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons ground chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Preparation

Add vegetable oil, diced onion, ground beef, and salt in a pot and place it over high heat. Once the meat chunks become brown, break them up into smaller pieces using a wooden spoon, and continue to stir as beef releases its juices.

When there is no more liquid in the pot, reduce heat to medium-high and add garlic, chili powder, cumin, paprika and black pepper.

Stir the mix until it starts to go dark (3 to 4 minutes), then add oregano, water, and tomato puree.

Bring to a simmer and adjust the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 30 minutes.

Finally, stir in diced green pepper and pinto beans and simmer 30 more minutes. The chili should turn into a nice thick mix. The whole process should take no more than 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Bon appétit!
