Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 25 mins
Total Time: 30 mins
Servings: 8 (1 cup) servings


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef, I use 93/7
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons garlic, minced


  • Add your ground beef to a large stock pot. Use your spatula to crumble the beef. Add in your chopped green pepper and onion. Cook on medium high, stirring occasionally, until beef is browned.
  • If your beef isn't very lean you'll want to drain the grease before moving on to the next step. I use a very lean beef so I don't need to drain mine.
  • Once your ground beef is cooked it's time to add the other ingredients to the pot. Stir. Cover and let simmer for 20 - 25 minutes.
  • Taste. Add extra salt or pepper if that's your preference. Top with green onions, avocado, cilantro, or onion. Enjoy!


You can substitute ground turkey if you prefer that to beef.
