- Would be good to add mushrooms and onions
- 1 ½ pounds ground beef
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 1 green pepper, diced
- 1 jalapeno, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- ¼ cup tomato paste
- 15 ounces canned diced tomatoes
- 2 cups beef broth
- 2 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Add the ground beef, onion, and bell pepper to a large deep pot and cook over medium heat, breaking up the meat as it cooks. When meat is cooked through, drain fat from pan.
- Add the jalapeno, garlic, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, beef broth, chili powder, cumin, and salt and stir.
- Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for at least 20 minutes, preferably an hour for the best taste and texture.
- Serve with sour cream and shredded cheddar, as desired.
Simmer for at least 20 minutes before serving. The longer the chili simmers, the better the flavor will be. I recommend one hour or more for the best taste and texture. Add additional broth if too much cooks off during the simmering process.
This is an onion ring batter recipe, but it can be used for fried cheese sticks, fried mushrooms, etc.
