My favorite chili recipe! Of course it's mine and that makes it better than anyone else's...well, at least in my mind :). Easy to make and fills the house with the comforting aroma of a hearty meal on a snowy day.

  • 2 pounds ground sirloin

  • ½ cup water

  • 1 large white onion, diced

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 pound round steak, diced small

  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh garlic

  • 4 (14 ounce) cans petite diced tomatoes

  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed (Optional)

  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste

  • ½ cup diced Hatch green chiles, or more to taste

  • 3 ½ tablespoons chili powder

  • 2 tablespoons dried cilantro

  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (Optional)


  1. Heat a large saucepan or stockpot over medium heat. Add ground sirloin, water, and onion; cook and stir until onion softens, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking until beef is halfway browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cubed sirloin and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until onions are translucent but not browned, 3 to 5 minutes more.

  2. Add diced tomatoes, kidney beans, tomato paste, green chiles, chili powder, cilantro, cumin, ginger, curry powder, and cayenne pepper to the pan. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and simmer until flavors blend, at least 2 hours.

Cook's Note:

Substitute 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro for the dried if you like.
