Hearty Beef Chili


Cooking onions, garlic and beef together adds extra fl avor to chili. Reducing the amount of ground beef and adding extra beans and some vegetables turns this classic dish into a hearty but nutritious meal.


3/4 lb. lean ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
1 tsp. ground cumin
2 cans (14 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, diced
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. chili powder (or more, to taste)
1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves
2 cans (15 oz.) red kidney beans, rinsed and drained


In a heavy pot, sauté the ground beef with onion and garlic until beef is no longer pink and onion and garlic are tender.

Sprinkle flour over mixture; cook and stir for two to three minutes.

Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until fl avors are blended. If too thick, add a little water.
