Hearty Beef Chili

Hearty Beef Chili

A great meal for those cold winter days (even if it rarely gets cold in Wilmington!) this Chili is easy to make, tastes great and is packed with protein. I usually eat it with some cheddar cheese sprinkled on top and a big scoop of sour cream, but it is delicious on its own. I credit Nick Boyd from the South Side Soda Shop with this recipe, and you can even see him make it on Diner’s, Drive Ins and Dives. And I won’t share his secret ingredient, but I will tell you that you can spice this up however you want… be creative!

A 12 ounce bowl has 45g protein, 20g carbs and 12g fat

2 Lbs Ground Beef – Local and grassfed is best!
Chopped Celery, Onions and Green Peppers – use LOTS of veggies!
1 Can Kidney Beans
1 Can Crushed Tomatoes
Salt, Cumin, Chili Powder, Garlic Powder to taste. Add cayenne pepper if you want!

Chop the veggies, then steam them and brown the ground beef.
Drain the fat well, then let beef and veggies cook a little more
Add tomato and beans.
Add Seasonings.
Simmer for at least 10 minutes, but this chili gets better the longer it cooks!
