  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups water


  • In a saucepan over medium heat add oil and stir the beef until it is brown, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the spices: paprika, cayenne, garlic, onion powders and salt.
  • Stir the spices into the beef for a minute.
  • Tip in the cans of tomato sauce and diced tomatoes and stir.
  • Add water and with the lid on, cook the chilli on low heat for an hour.
  • After an hour, take the lid off and turn the heat to high (this will allow the chilli to get more flavor).
  • Stir the chilli for 10-15 minutes.
  • To serve, ladle chilli in a bowl, top with chopped onion, cheddar cheese, cilantro or any other toppings you prefer.
