Beef Chili Recipe


  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 3 pounds ground beef, or ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 3 1/4 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dry oregano
  • Dried red pepper flakes, to taste – I used a sprinkle, but feel free to use 1 teaspoon, or 1 tablespoon – up to you!
  • 2 8-ounce cans tomato sauce or 2 cups fresh tomato sauce or tomato puree
  • 1 2/3 cups organic beef broth, preferably low sodium
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 19-ounce can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a large 5-quart pot, preferably a dutch oven, heat the oil over low heat and cook the onions in it for about 10 minutes, until softened.
  2. Add the garlic and carrots and cook for one minute more. Raise the heat to medium and add the beef and about 1 tsp of salt. 
  3. Break up any lumps and cook until the meat is no longer pink, about 12 minutes. 
  4. Add the chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano and peppers flakes and cook for another two minutes.
  5. Add the tomato sauce, broth and vinegar and simmer the chili, covered, for about 45 minutes. 
  6. Add the kidney beans, bell peppers, salt and pepper to taste and simmer for an additional 20 minutes, until the bell peppers are tender. 
  7. Serve atop a bed of white rice and enjoy!
