Chili with Beef and Beans

Beef and Bean Chili

Diana Rattray
This chili is a well-seasoned combination of lean ground beef, tomatoes, and beans. Use a good quality chili powder in this tasty chili. Almost too easy to be true!


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 can (28 ounces) tomatoes, diced, with juices
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chili beans, small red beans, or kidney beans, drained and rinsed


Cook first 3 ingredients in a large saucepan until meat is browned, stirring until it crumbles; drain off excess fat. Add chili powder and next 8 ingredients, stirring well; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Add beans, stirring well, and cook until thoroughly heated.
Serves 6.

I've been looking for a go-to chili recipe for awhile now. This is so flavorful and yummy. I have made it several times now and it is definitely my preferred recipe when I want chili fast.
