Winter is the perfect time for a big bowl of chili. There are countless chili recipes to choose from – beef, chicken, vegetarian, beans, etc. Our favorite combo is black beans and Rocky Hill Farm’s ground beef (of course!).
By cooking with grass fed beef, you are cooking with lean beef and cutting out all that grease while still getting that amazing flavor. This simple recipe is hearty, healthy and can be ready in 30 minutes.
- Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until onions soften, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and sauté another 2-3 minutes (don’t let it burn)
- Mix in Rocky Hill Farm ground beef and cook just until the pink is gone.
- Stir in beans, 1/2 cup reserved bean liquid.
- Mix in chili powder, oregano, cumin, and cayenne; stir 2 minutes. Then add tomato sauce. Bring chili to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until flavors blend and chili thickens, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Ladle chili into bowls. Top off with your choice of chopped cilantro, sour cream, grated cheese, and green onions.
