Classic Chili

6 servings


40 minutes

total time


1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 large white onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 tbsp. tomato paste

1 1/2 lb. ground beef

1 1/2 tbsp. chili powder

1 tsp. dried oregano

1 tsp. ground cumin

1/2 tsp. paprika

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 (28-oz.) can crushed tomatoes

2 (15-oz.) can chili beans, drained


In a large pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Add tomato paste, stirring to coat vegetables. Add ground beef and cook, breaking up meat with a spoon, until no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Drain any excess fat.

Add chili powder, oregano, cumin, paprika, and cayenne (if using); generously season with salt and black pepper. Pour in tomatoes and beans and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors have melded and liquid is slightly reduced, about 20 minutes; season with salt and black pepper, if needed.
