Meal #37: Classic Beef Chili

Taking a break from eggplant – but not for long – by using up the rest of our ground beef.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon coriander
    • Didn’t think we’d use this anywhere else so it got skipped
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • We used at least 4 times as much
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 12 ounces ground beef
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup kidney beans
    • We’re not big fans of beans and we were pretty sure this would turn out fine without them

Finished Product

This was the kind of dish that really retained its heat even after sitting for a while – we made it a little fancier with a dab of sour cream and had plenty left over.
