Chili con carne

This chili con carne with ground beef is a serious crowd-pleaser! It has a nice flavour and just enough spice. It comes together in less than an hour. It you use lean ground beef, it’ll be healthier and also keeps it from being greasy.


Chili Spice Mix:
  • 1 – 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 4 tsp paprika powder
  • 5 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp oregano


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and onion, cook for 1 minute, then add pepper and cook for 2 minutes until onion is translucent.
  • Turn heat up to high and add beef. Cook, breaking it up as you go, until mostly browned.
  • Add Chili Spice Mix. Cook until beef is browned all over.
  • Add remaining ingredients, with 1/2 cup of water. Bring to simmer, then adjust heat for 20 to 40 minutes, uncovered, on medium low heat so it’s bubbling gently;
  • Adjust salt and pepper to taste just before serving.
  • Serve in bowls with corn chips or warm tortillas on the side with toppings of choice (we love cheese and green onions).
