Permanent link for Chili on August 2, 2022

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Serves: 4



  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 medium onion
  • A few cloves of garlic
  • 4 roma tomatoes (skinned) OR 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 6oz tomato paste (1 small can)
  • 1 can red kidney beans
  • 1 can black beans
  • ~1 cup water (more or less depending on preferred consistency)


  • 3 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 1 bay leaf

Everything is to taste, start small and add more as you please. I usually add dashes of these:

  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Cayenne
  • Paprika
  • Cardamom



  1. First, peel the skin off the tomatoes: score one end and blanch (boil for ~20 seconds & drop into cold water).

  2. Heat olive oil in large pot, saute onions and garlic until translucent.

  3. Add ground beef and break up. While beef browns, rough chop the peeled tomatoes.

  4. Add tomatoes and tomato paste along with around 1 cup of water. You can use more or less depending on your prefered consistency.

  5. Once simmering again add beans and seasonings. These are all to taste, I recommend starting small and adding more after tasting.

  6. Cover and simmer for 15-30 minutes. Top with cheese!
