 Ingredients List

  • olive oil
  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 8 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes with green pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 1/3 cup brewed espresso or strong coffee
  • 1 15-ounce cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15-ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15-ounce cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, sliced scallions, for topping


Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.

Add beef and season with salt and pepper. Brown and then transfer to a plate.

Reduce the heat to medium and add more oil to the pot. Add the onions and garlic, and cook until soft.

Add 1/3 cup chili powder, the oregano and pepper flakes, and tomato paste. Cook for about a minute.

Return the meat to the pot and stir in the tomatoes with their juices, broth, espresso and beans.

Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer partially covered for about 2 hours.

(optional) Stir in an additional 2 tablespoons chili powder into the chili and serve. Top with cheese, sour cream, scallions, the works!


**You could definitely make this in a crockpot too! Just brown your beef, onions and garlic together. Put everything in the crockpot and let it cook for 8 hours. It will be just as tasty!
