Three Bean and Beef Chili
Sometimes a good, hearty chili is just the ticket. Tonight's recipe was a healthy Ellie Krieger recipe.
In a little olive oil some diced onion, diced red bell pepper, and diced carrots were cooked until soft. Some ground cumin went in and was stirred for 1 minute. A pound of lean ground beef was added to the pot and cooked, breaking up the meat until browned. A large can of crushed tomatoes, some water, a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, dried oregano, and salt and freshly ground black pepper were stirred in and allowed to simmer for 30 minutes.
Cans of drained, rinsed black beans, kidney beans, and pinto beans were added and allowed to simmer for another 20 minutes. We garnished with grated cheddar and diced fresh onions.
We had this with some fresh cornbread.
This is a great, hearty beef chili for 295 calories per serving.
