This simple chili is delicious, easy, and only has a few ingredients to worry about! It freezes very easily and heats back up in no time! You can serve it over rice, cornbread, on top of nachos, or a chili cheese dog!
Start by chopping up a large onion.
Add the onions with some olive oil to a large dutch oven, or a large, heavy pot. Heat on medium. Toss in a little salt and let it cook for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
Then add in a pound and a half of ground beef. You don’t have to brown it all the way before you add the spices.
Sift together the spice blend…there’s cumin, coriander, chili powder, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper.
Mix it in thoroughly and let it cook for about five minutes until the beef is completely cooked.
Add in the diced tomatoes.
Let it simmer on low for an hour, covered. If it gets too dry add a little bit of water.
Whisk the masa corn flour together with a little water and stir it into the chili.
Serve any way you want!! Enjoy!
