Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper in hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Break ground beef into small pieces and add to vegetable mixture; cook and stir, continuing to break beef into smaller pieces, until beef is completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic, seasoned salt, chili powder, oregano, cumin, red pepper flakes, and sugar to the beef mixture; cook and stir until you smell the garlic, about 1 minute more. Pour tomato sauce, black beans, and diced tomatoes into the pot; stir.

  • Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, place a cover on the pot, and continue cooking until the beans and tomatoes are tender and the flavors blend, 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Cook's Note:

To slice jalapenos, cut the jalapeno in half length-wise and use a spoon to scoop out all of the seeds and white parts. Then cut each half into small strips.

Wicked Easy Chili Haiku: "No doubt it's 5 stars! What made it so magical? I have no idea." Instead of the jalapenos and reg. diced tomato can I used a can of Rotel and was otherwise entirely faithful to the recipe. Can't say that I can put my finger on what made this chili so outstanding but for all the chili recipes that I've tried I can't recall the last one that elicited so many mumbled "mmmmm's!" and resounding agreements on 5-stars from my husband daughter and myself than this one.

Eh. All the reviews say this is good but I'm a bit disappointed. Something was missing. Maybe next time I'll try increasing the chili powder from 2 tsp to 2 Tbsp and see how that goes. Read More

This is some seriously good chili considering how easy it is to make! Flavors have depth and this chili isn't too spicy either. All in all I am impressed with this recipe. I did use all organic ingredients, maybe that makes a difference, who knows? Read More

My first time making chili for my family using this site and it was SO yummy! My tiny one's tummy can't tolerate super hot things so I omitted the peppers. Also I didn't have any fresh garlic on hand so I just used a bit of garlic powder. Definitely quick easy and delicious Read More

Lives up to its name - easy. I don't like super spicy chili so I did not use any jalepeno peppers. I did use one can of the Rotelle tomato and jalepeno mix. I like that this recipe calls for the lowest fat ground beef - still yummy but not so fatty. I added a red pepper and another can of black beans. I also did not include the seasoned salt - I don't like things salty and this chili is so flavorful I didn't miss the salt at all. I still found my chili spicy but the perfect spiciness for me.

Exceptional. One of the best chillis Ive ever had. Simple and quick to make very flavorful and a bit of heat without being too hot to add to the delicious flavor. From now on this will be a staple of our family meals. Read More
