Ingredient: Red Meat
Pair with: Cabernet Sauvignon
1 lb ground beef
1 small white onion, diced
3 cans diced tomatoes with green chilis (15oz)
2 cans beans, drained (15oz)
2 tbsp chili powder
Toppings are optional, including shredded cheese, chopped green onion, sour cream, cilantro, etc.
In a large stockpot, cook ground beef or turkey over medium-high heat until browned, stirring frequently. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked beef or turkey to a separate plate and set aside. Reserve 1 tablespoon of grease in the stockpot, and discard the rest.
Add the onion to the stockpot and saute for 4-5 minutes, or until soft.
Add remaining ingredients and the cooked beef or turkey to the stockpot, and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnished with optional toppings if desired.
