  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili pepper
  • 1 tablespoon coarse kosher salt
  • 2 jalepeños, stems removed and finely minced
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes

Instructions:
  1. In a large heavy-bottom pot add ground beef, onion and garlic over medium heat. Cook, breaking up large pieces until no pink remains, approximately 10 minutes. Drain excess fat, if desired.
  2. Add chili powder, cumin, ancho pepper, jalapeño and salt. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in tomatoes, sauce, beans and paste. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Yields approximately 3 quarts.
