Chili recipe

I am just back from an amazing conference where I made some lovely friends. I packed my own food and brought some chili. One of the girls I met asked me to post the recipe.

Sweet Alisa, this is for you!


Black Bean Chili

Author: Savvy Food Mama

Recipe type: Dinner


  • 1 onion
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 Tbsp good fat (I used butter)
  • 2 cans black beans
  • 1 jar tomato sauce
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • salt, pepper, chili powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder


Note: My favorite brand for spices is Simply Organic.

  1. Chop the onion small and saute in butter til soft.
  2. Add the meat and brown.
  3. Dump in sauce, paste and beans, rinsed.
  4. Add spices. I used 1 and 1/2 tsp salt, 5 pepper cranks, probably 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, and 1 and 1/2 tsp chili powder. Do what tastes good to you. If you have raw garlic on hand, use that instead. If you have red wine in your fridge, dump in 1/4 cup.
  5. Simmer for 10 minutes. Ta da!
