Simple Chili Recipe

Chili and football go together hand-in-hand. What better way to enjoy a game than a bowl of the hearty warm good stuff, sprinkled with a little cheese and a dollop of sour cream? In less than 20 minutes, you can throw together a batch of my Speedster Chili using canned black beans, chopped tomatoes, ground beef and a few mix-ins for flavor.

Speedster Chili

What you’ll need…
1 15-ounce can black beans
1 chipotle pepper in Adobo sauce, plus 1 teaspoon Adobo sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
1 red onion, chopped

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound lean ground beef
1 28-ounce can chopped tomatoes
1 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
Salt and pepper

Get started…
1.  In a food processor, puree the beans with the chipotle pepper and set aside.
2.  Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Heat until simmering. Add the onions and saute until translucent.
3.  Add the ground beef, cumin, cayenne, and teaspoon of Adobo sauce. Cook until beef is browned. Season with salt.
