Why I Love This Recipe

This is just a little something I made up the other night when everyone was hungry, but the busy day had left us no time to make anything elaborate.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 lbs ground lean beef
1 1/2 (14oz) cans tomato sauce
1 (14 oz) can petit diced tomatoes
up to 3 cups chicken broth
1 can red kidney beans
1 can black beans
1 can canellini beans
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp ancho chili powder
1 tbsp granulated garlic
1 tbsp granulated onion
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 med onion, diced fine
2 shallots, diced fine
1 bunch green onions
colby-jack cheese
sour cream
1/4 cup masa harina


Brown the ground beef in a dutch oven with all but 1/3 cup of the diced onion, and all of the shallots. Add the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and 3 cans (using the now empty tomato can) of chicken broth.

Stir in beans and seasonings. Add a teaspoon of salt and some fresh ground pepper. Simmer for 15-20 minutes. If you like thick chili, combine the masa with a couple tbsp of chicken broth and stir in, then let simmer 5 more minutes.

Serve with sliced green onions, remaining diced onions, shredded cheese, and sour cream ass optional toppings.
