A hearty, classic beef chili filled with beans and spices simmers aromatically for an hour, ready for your favorite toppings.


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 yellow onions, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups College Inn® Beef Broth

  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • Shredded Cheddar cheese
  • onion, chopped
  • Sour cream
  • Sliced green onions
  • Cilantro leaves


  1. Heat oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onions and bell pepper and cook until softened, about 8 minutes. Stir in garlic, chili powder and cumin and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add beef and salt and cook about 8 minutes until beef is no longer pink, breaking the meat into small pieces with a wooden spoon.
  3. Stir in beans, broth and tomatoes. Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the flavors meld, about 1 hour. Stir in vinegar. Serve with toppings, as desired.
