  • Freshly ground pepper (about ½ tsp) $0.03
Instructions (Please ask for permission and assistance from an adult when using knives or the stove and oven)
  1. Dice the onion and mince the garlic. Add both to a large pot with the olive oil and cook over medium heat until they are soft and transparent. Add the ground beef and continue to sauté until the beef is fully browned.
  2. Drain the beans and add them to the pot along with the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, 1 cup water, and all of the ingredients for the chili seasoning. Stir until well combined. Place a lid on the pot and allow it to simmer over a low flame for at least 15 minutes, stirring occasionally (the flavor gets better the longer it simmers).
Notes
**The chili powder used is a mild blend of dried chilies and other spices. It is not spicy or hot.  If you don’t eat red meat you can use ground chicken or turkey and if you prefer a veggie chili  omit the meat and just add more of your favorite vegetables like red, orange and yellow peppers, mushrooms even corn.
