Ingredients
  

  • 3 pounds Certified Angus Beef ® ground beef
  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili pepper
  • 1 tablespoon coarse kosher salt
  • 2 jalepeños stems removed and finely minced
  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes

  • 1 15-ounce can red kidney beans, rinsed
  • 1 15-ounce can pinto beans, rinsed
  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • Optional toppings: shredded sharp cheddar sour cream, diced green onions

Instructions
 

  • In a large heavy-bottom pot add beef, onion and garlic over medium heat. Cook, breaking up large pieces until no pink remains, approximately 10 minutes. Drain excess fat, if desired.
  • Add chili powder, cumin, ancho pepper, jalapeño and salt. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in tomatoes, sauce, beans and paste. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Yields approximately 3 quarts.
