Quick Facts

Servings: 8
A delicious, spicy chili. Though easy to make, it needs time to cook. Serve with cornbread and salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups pinto beans, dried
  • 5 1/2 cups water
  • 1 lb round steak, trimmed, cut into 1inch (3cm) pieces
  • 2 1/2 Tbs chili powder
  • 1 Tbs cumin
  • 1 tsp salt (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 1/2 cups tomato sauce, (one 29-ounce can)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F (165°C).
  • Rinse beans thoroughly and sort through to remove dirt. In a large Dutch oven, cover beans and water, and heat to a boil. Boil for two minutes. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Cover and bake in oven until beef and beans are tender, about 4 hours. Remove from oven and stir.
  • Serve with light sour cream and chopped green onions.

* Allergy notes: People following a corn-free diet should avoid iodized salt since it contains dextrose, which should be avoided by those allergic to corn.
