Beef & Black Bean Chili

It's been snowing or cold the past 4 or 5 days and so chili is always something we like to make when the weather is dreadful. This was a beef and black bean chili recipe from Pinterest that I had wanted to try, so that is what I did. We had this chili with some jalapeno cheddar cornbread muffins.

Beef & Black Bean Chili
Adapted by:

1 pound extra lean ground beef
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, diced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon chipotle chili powder
1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes (I bought a can that had zesty jalapenos mixed in)
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup reduced sodium beef broth
1 chipotle chili in adobo sauce, chopped
1 teaspoon oregano
salt and pepper, to taste

-Heat a large saucepan over medium high heat and brown your hamburger meat. Drain all grease and set aside.
-Add oil to pan and saute onions until soft, or about 5 minutes.
-Add the garlic, cumin, chili powders and cook an additional minute.
-Add the tomatoes, beef, beans, broth, chipotle and oregano, and bring to a boil.
-Reduce heat and cover with a lid.
-Simmer for 25 to 30 minutes.

Enjoy! :)
