This is my traditional chili recipe. Of course you can use lean or regular ground beef just rinse it after it is cooked to help limit the saturated fat level.


  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (15oz) no salt added kidney beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 can (15oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (28oz) no salt added diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 1 can (6oz) tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp oregano leaves
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Top with chopped green onions and shredded cheddar cheese (Optional)


  1. In a large skillet, cook ground beef until no longer pink, breaking up the pieces while cooking. Set aside.
  2. In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, celery and garlic; sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Add cooked beef and remaining ingredients; stir. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve topped with chopped green onions and shredded cheddar cheese, if desired.
