Prep the peppers
Prep the peppers

Prep: Wash and dry all produce. Mince or grate the garlic. Drain and rinse the kidney beans. Core, seed and remove the white veins from the green bell pepper, then dice into 1/2-inch cubes.

Brown the beef
Brown the beef

Brown the beef: Heat a large pot over medium–high heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the ground beef. Cook, breaking up the pieces with a wooden spoon, until the meat is no longer pink, 4-5 min.


Cook the vegetables: Add the onion, green bell pepper and garlic to the pan. Cook, stirring often, until the onion softens, 3-4 min. Add the spice blend and stir to coat.

Simmer the chili
Simmer the chili

Simmer the chili: Add the beef broth concentrates, tomato paste, beans, crushed tomatoes, and 1 cup water to the pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until the chili is slightly thickened, 9-10 min. Season with salt and pepper. (TIP: If you have time, keep it simmering on the stove for longer! It gets better the longer it cooks!)


Finish and serve: Serve the chili divided between bowls. Sprinkle over the cheddar cheese and add a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy!
