Chili con Carne

Updated: Dec 23, 2020

A bowl of comforting and delicious Chili con Carne! 😍

If I told you that I don’t enjoy a bowl of hot bean soup, I would be lying! And, what kind of latina would that make me? 😂 But, I do have to eat them in moderation, because my body doesn’t digest beans easily, and this recipe makes that so hard. Try it and you will know what I mean!


1 tbsp avocado oil

1/4 cup chopped red onion

1 lb lean ground beef (turkey would be great too)

1 15oz can of red kidney beans

1 15oz can of pinto beans

1 10oz can of @roteltomatoes diced tomatoes & green chilies (mild or regular)

1 8oz can of tomato sauce

1 tbsp chili powder

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp oregano

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2-3 tsps fresh minced garlic

2 tsps ground cumin

1-2 tsps hot sauce. I like @sietefoods

Salt & pepper to taste


Heat up oil in a pot over medium heat. Sauté onions for 2 minutes.

Add meat and cook until brown.

Add chili powder, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, cumin powder, garlic, oregano, salt & pepper.

Add diced tomatoes & green chilies and tomato sauce. Mix to combine and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Stir in the beans and hot sauce and simmer for about 1hr.

Taste and adjust spices as needed.

This chili tastes even better the next day!

Favorite Toppings:

Chopped green onions, avocado and jalapeño pepper slices.
