Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 pound (95% lean) ground beef
  • 1 large yellow onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups diced fresh or frozen bell peppers (from about 2 peppers, if fresh)
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans no-salt added beans, such as kidney and/or black
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
Method

In a large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add beef and cook, breaking it up with a spoon until browned, about 5 minutes. Add onion and garlic and cook until onions begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in chili powder and cumin. Add broth, bell peppers, corn, beans and tomato paste. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer, covered, until the flavors blend, 20 to 25 minutes. Garnish with green onions and cilantro before serving.

*For an even heartier stew, add 1/2 cup bulgur wheat and 1 cup water along with the beans; cook the chili an extra 20 minutes to allow the bulgur to soften, and then let the stew sit, covered, for 10 minutes before serving. The bulgur will give it an even thicker, meatier texture and add nutrients and fiber.
