  1. 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.
  2. 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.

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 ...

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...
