- Heat a large saucepan over medium. Add oil, then onion and mushrooms. Cook until onion and mushrooms are soft, about 3 min. Crumble in meat and add seasonings. Using a fork, stir frequently to break meat up. Cook until no pink remains, 3 to 5 min. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in tomatoes and simmer, covered, until flavours develop, about 10 min.
- Stir in beans and cook until hot, about 2 more min. Spoon chili into bowls. Top our easy chili recipe with sour cream, cheese and green onion. Keeps well up to 3 days.
Add any remaining beef broth you have in your fridge to this recipe for even more flavour. Add with the tomatoes and simmer for an extra 10 to 15 min.
Chili powder is a mild blend of chili peppers, herbs and spices. Add cayenne or chili flakes for more punch.
“The method is different from my usual chili, which cooks for almost two hours. But I think this one is better! It smells great and tastes so fresh.”
