  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef

  • Salt & pepper to taste

  • 1 large onion (chopped)

  • 2 garlic (minced)

  • 2 tablespoons chilli powder

  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 28 ounces can whole peeled San Marzano tomatoes (or chopped tomatoes)

  • 2 15 ounces cans white beans (drained and rinsed)


  • In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add in the ground beef, season it with salt and pepper, and let it cook without breaking it up for 2-3 minutes to develop the flavor. Then, break it up and cook for another 2-3 minutes until it’s fully cooked.
  • Add in the onion and cook for another 2-3 minutes until it softens and turns golden. You want the beef and onions to get some color because that’s what gives it flavor. Add in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add in the chili powder, oregano, and cumin, stirring until they’re fragrant, which should take another minute or so.
  • Add in the tomatoes and beans. Bring the mixture to a boil and then turn down the heat to low. Allow it to simmer uncovered for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally,until most of the liquid has cooked out.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve with cilantro topping or sour cream.
