Taste in Bloom Original
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced.
- 1 medium bell pepper or zucchini
- 3 Tbsp chili powder
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1- 14.5oz can of diced tomatoes (try fire roasted)
- beef stock (opt. to taste if your chili is thicker than you like)
- 1-2 cans of beans of your choice, drained (opt.)
Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
Combine ground beef, diced onion and minced garlic together in the large pot and cook until the beef is browned.
Add the seasonings: chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper and stir until combined. Stir in diced tomatoes and bell pepper or zucchini and beans, if using. Reduce heat to a simmer.
If at this point the chili is a little thicker than you like, stir in beef stock, one tablespoon at a time, until the chili reaches the desired consistency. Simmer for 20 minutes or up to 45 minutes, covered just so a little steam can escape.
