Asian-Style Spicy Beef Chili

Ingredients

Servings: 6 people
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 60 minutes
Ingredients:
1.5 lbs ground chuck or beef
2 (1.25 oz) packets chili powder (medium or hot)
1 medium sized potato, cubed
1/2 yellow onion, diced
2 tbsp red chili pepper flakes
5, 6 dried red chili peppers
1 large can tomato, diced
5, 6 garlic cloves, minced
1 (15 oz) can black beans
1 (15 oz) can kidney beans
1, 2 cups water (or beef broth)
salt and pepper to taste
sesame seeds (garnish)
shredded cheese (optional)

Preparation

1
Brown ground meat in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat. Cook until brown and add the minced garlic. Discard excess fatty oil either by draining or using a strainer.
2
After cutting hard vegetables into cubes, add to the pot with water, chili powder, and seasonings like soy sauce and red pepper flakes. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring continuously.
3
Add remaining ingredients like canned tomatoes and bean varieties; slow boil on low heat for a minimum of 30 minutes.
4
Serve with rice and/or desired toppings like sesame seeds, diced onions, cheese, or even crackers.
5
*Instead of using premade chili mix packets (like we do), you can also combine the following ingredients to make your own chili seasoning: chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper, and salt.
