Ingredients

  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef, pork or turkey
  • garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano leaves
  • chipotle peppers, in abodo sauce
  • green or red pepper or zucchini
  • large onion
  • 540-mL can white kidney or navy beans, drained and rinsed
  • 796-mL can diced tomatoes, preferably without added salt
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste

Instructions

  • COAT a large pot with vegetable oil and set over medium-high heat. Add meat, garlic, chili powder and oregano. Stir frequently with a fork to break meat up, and cook until no pink remains, from 5 to 7 min. Meanwhile, finely chop chipotles and chop pepper and onion. Once meat is cooked, stir in all other ingredients.
  • BRING to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender and flavours have developed, 25 to 40 min. Great served with a dollop of plain low-fat yogourt and chopped chives.
