1. In a 6-8 qt. pot, brown ground meat
2. While the meat begins to brown, add onions and garlic. Continue browning until meat is no longer pink.
3. Drain meat and return it back into pot. Add seasonsings, tomatoes and black beans (don't drain).
4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
5. OPTIONAL: After 10 minutes, mix cornstarch and water. Stir to dissolve and add mixture to the chili, stirring well to incorporate. (this will add a bit more moisture and thicken the chili).
6. Continue to simmer the chili for an additional 5 minutes.
7. Reduce heat to keep chili warm until ready to serve. Serve with grated cheese, sour cream, chopped green onions, chopped tomatoes.
This is good with cornbread.
I usually split the recipe in two to make both meat and vegetarian versions. Make vegetarian by subbing extra beans (black, red or cannelini) for the meat (see second picture). You'll get about 3-4 servings of each.
