1 tbsp
Compliments Canola Oil
15 mL
1 lb
lean ground beef
500 g
1 cup
finely diced onion
250 mL
2 tbsp
minced garlic
30 mL
2 tbsp
chili powder
30 mL
1 tsp
5 mL
1/4 cup
tomato paste
60 mL
1 can
Compliments Crushed Tomatoes
796 mL
1 can
Compliments Black Beans, rinsed and drained
540 mL
1/4 tsp each
salt and black pepper
1 mL
1/2 cup
sour cream
125 mL
green onions, thinly sliced


Step 1

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef, browning it while breaking it apart with the cooking spatula. Strain off the excess fat, if desired, keeping the meat in the pan.

Step 2

Mix in the onion, garlic, chili powder and cumin. Cook until onion softens, about 3 min. Add the tomato paste. Cook, stirring, about 2 min., until the paste is slightly caramelized to deepen the flavour. Stir in the crushed tomatoes, beans, salt and pepper, along with 1 cup (250 mL) water (or beef or vegetable broth). Mix well and bring to a gentle simmer. Cover and cook 20 min. to combine flavours. If desired, uncover part way through simmering for a thicker chili.

Step 3

Taste and adjust seasonings, if needed. Remove from the heat. Cover and let chili stand 5 min. to cool slightly.

Step 4

Garnish bowls of chili with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of green onions to serve.


For a fun serving twist, hollow out fresh store-baked kaiser or sourdough rolls into bowls. Lightly toast them in the oven before filling with hot chili and topping with shredded cheese. Return to the oven to melt the cheese. Garnish and serve!
For a meatless version, substitute the ground beef with Beyond Beef Plant-Based Ground Simulated Lean Ground Beef. Or try other meats such as ground chicken, turkey, lamb or bison for flavourful variations.
