  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 medium red onions (chopped)
  • 2 poblano peppers (chopped)
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 28 ounces canned diced tomatoes
  • 30 ounces canned chili beans

  • 6 ounces canned tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cups beef Stock (unsalted)
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream for serving

Chili Seasoning


  • Place ground beef and onions in a large Dutch oven and brown over medium heat.
  • Halfway through browning add peppers. Then add your chili seasoning and minced garlic when the mixture is almost done browning. Continue cooking for a few more minutes until the garlic and seasonings are fragrant.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to the pot of chili and stir to combine. Simmer for approximately 3 hours over low heat, or until the chili reaches your desired thickness. 
  • Serve with shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream.


Make sure you have hot sauce on hand to spice it up as desired.
