Beef Chili with Beans

This chili with beans and meat recipe is a favorite in our house, and can be seasoned to taste to create a mildly flavored dish or one that is extra hot for those who enjoy some additional spice. As is, this chili is not too spicy but has just enough kick and the ingredients that go into it, give it teriffic depth of flavor.

I was hoping this would be "the" chili recipe & sadly it was not. It was good but all I tasted was the heat (cayenne & pepper flake). While I like spicy chili, I was not getting any chili flavor.

Just made this and it rocks! I left out the garlic and added 1 TBS of Saigon Cinnamon and a couple tablespoons of honey. Outstanding!

I produced this in my pressure cooker, using left over rump steak (from the bottom of the freezer) which I blitzed in the blender to mince and some spare cans of kidney beans. I also threw in a few extra tried chilies, as I like it hot. The result was super tender chunks of meat, a rich spicy chili sauce and fall-apart beans. Served it on rice, with some cheese on top. Very yummy, for a 20 minute meal.

It was as good as I expected! I used ancho chili powder from Penzey's and toasted the coriander seed before I ground it. Hubby said it was delicious and he is very particular about his chili. Might try to tweak it in the future with different peppers, I only used green bell and 1 jalapeno. The meat adding technique was different but I love the way it turned out.

I'm incredibly picky when it comes to meals with ground beef but the % recommendation combined with the delicious flavors overall just make this simply amazing. The only ground beef chili I've ever had that I genuinely love!
