Classic, medium strength chili the whole family will enjoy. The slow-simmer method takes a little longer, but the results are worth the wait. We used pinto beans, but you can substitute red kidney or black beans.

  • Add 1 cup water, chopped tomatoes (with liquid), beef bouillon and Sazon to pot. Bring tomato mixture to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until mixture thickens and flavors come together, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour. Stir in beans. Cook until heated through, about 15 minutes more.

  • Divide chili among serving bowls. Garnish with cheese, sour cream and onions, if desired.

Cooking Tip from LA COCINA GOYA

Control the Spiciness in your Pot of Chili: A good rule of thumb when working with a spicy chile, like a jalapeno: The finer you dice the pepper, the more surface area is exposed, and in turn, the more of the spicy oils it releases. Here, we roughly chop the pepper which creates a medium spicy effect. For an even hotter end product, cut the pieces into a very fine dice. Care for a mild, background spice? Keep the chili whole, and fish it out at the end.
