Candace’s Lean, Hi-Protein Chili

Share it:

If you don’t do grains, eliminate the corn. If you don’t like spicy, eliminate the jalapeno and/or the cayenne pepper. The great thing about chili is that it’s so customizable to your personal tastes.  This is packed with protein!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef (93/7 preferred), bison, venison, or a mix
  • 1 finely chopped red onion (or yellow or white onion if that’s what you’ve got)
  • 1 chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (optional)
  • 3-5 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans
  • 1 15-ounce can dark red kidney beans
  • 1 15-ounce can corn
  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1-2 cups beef stock or broth
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (use as much or as little as you like for preferred heat level)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Brown ground beef, then add onion, bell peppers, and jalapeno. Once those have softened, add garlic. Stir for another 2-3 minutes, then add beans, tomatoes, corn, and tomato paste. Once combined, add your seasonings. Add beef stock/broth until you like the consistency, then add balsamic vinegar. Simmer at least 30 minutes before eating, preferably an hour or more. It’s best when you make it the day before and then heat it back up!
