Certified by the American Heart Association, this traditional chili couldn't be any easier. Simply brown lean Ground Beef, add in pantry-friendly ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes. The result? A chili that tastes like it's been cooking for hours.
- 1 pound 96% Lean Ground Beef
- 1 can (15 ounces) reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) unsalted beef broth
- 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) unsalted diced tomatoes
- 1 can (4 ounces) green chilies or jalapeno peppers
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings.
Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
- Stir in beans, broth, tomatoes, green chilies and chili powder; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 minutes to develop flavors, stirring occasionally. Garnish with Toppings, as desired.
Cook's Tip: Omit green onions and cilantro if serving to early eaters (6-7 months). Toppings like avocado and shredded cheddar cheese provide a great opportunity for providing a variety of taste and texture to this dish for early eaters.
Optional Toppings: Sour cream, chopped fresh cilantro leaves, sliced green onion, shredded Cheddar cheese
