Easy Beef Bean Chili for #SundaySupper {#Chili #cookoff}

This week we are holding a virtual #SundaySupper Chili cook-off.  Yes, that is right all of us are competing and YOU get to vote on your favorite Chili recipe.  What great fun, and you know I must disclose to you that this is the first time ever that I am participating in any type of cook-off.  Yes, that is right…welcome to the first #SundaySupper Chili cook-off and my first partipation.

Now I know what you may be thinking that it is kind of strange for this German girl to make Chili. Yes, I know we are kind of spice wimps but all of us love a good bowl of stew, soup, and Chili.  Yup - plus my Chili is super easy - or as my girlies say easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy - quick and plain absolutely and you can always add more heat if you like. Right?! It is that easy that I am almost embarrassed to tell you about it.  Really, yes it is the truth - there is nothing fancy to it.  Just plain easy  absolutely yummy and the key to it all is to top it off with diced avocado.  Oh yes - nothing else but a few crackers and avocado…

Easy Beef Bean Chili

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 4-5 Tbs Chili Seasoning Mix w/o added salt {I like Frontier Chili Powder Fiesta}
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 diced red pepper
  • 1 can diced green fire roasted chili's {4 oz. mild}
  • 1 large can diced tomatoes {28 oz}
  • 1 C water
  • 2 can black beans, drained
  • 1 can white kidney beans {Cannellini}, drained 
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 large avocado for garnish
  1. Gently heat a large pot and add beef.  When it starts to brown add chili seasoning and stir it well into the meat.  Once the meat has browned 
  2. Add garlic cloves, diced red pepper, and the entire can of the diced green fire roasted chili's.  Stir well into the meat and cook for another couple of minutes.
  3. Stir in the entire can of tomatoes, water and beans.  Bring to a low simmer, cover and cook for at least 30 minutes.
  4. When you are ready to serve add salt, pepper, and adjust seasoning to taste.
  5. Serve in bowls and top each bowl with diced avocados.

I hope you enjoy this simple Chili :)
