  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 medium white onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 15oz can kidney beans, drained & rinsed
  • 15oz can black beans, drained & rinsed
  • 2 15oz can diced tomatoes
  • 15oz can corn, drained
  • 4.5oz can green chiles
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro


  • sour cream, tortilla strips, jalapenos, avocado, cheddar cheese


  1. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Once hot, add ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Drain excess grease and set meat aside in a bowl.
  2. In the same pan, turn heat back on to medium-high and add 1 tbsp olive oil. Cook onion and pepper until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add in garlic, chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir and let cook one minute. 
  3. Pour in beans, diced tomatoes, corn, and green chiles. Stir to combine, then add broth and water.
  4. Stir in chopped cilantro and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  5. Top with toppings of choice! I like cheese, tortilla strips, and sour cream.
