Chili Con Carne Recipe

8 servings



1 pound very lean ground beef

1 1/2 cups chopped onions

1 cup chopped green bell pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced

1-2 tablespoons chili powder

2 teaspoons each: ground cumin, dried oregano leaves

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

2 cans reduced-sodium whole tomatoes, undrained, coarsely chopped

1 can red kidney beans, rinsed, drained

1 can reduced-sodium beef broth

1 tablespoon each: packed light brown sugar, unsweetened cocoa

Salt and pepper, to taste

1/2 cup each: shredded fat-free or reduced-fat Cheddar cheese,

sliced green onions, fat-free sour cream


Saute ground beef, onions, bell pepper, garlic, herbs, and spices in lightly greased large saucepan until meat is brown and vegetables are tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Add tomatoes and liquid, beans, tomato paste, beer, brown sugar, and cocoa, heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 1 hour. Uncover and simmer to thicken, if desired. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle each serving of chili with cheese, green onions, and sour cream.
