INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (96% lean)
  • 1 can (15 ounces) reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) unsalted beef broth
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) unsalted diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilies or sliced jalapeño peppers
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
Toppings:
  • Sour cream, chopped fresh cilantro, sliced green onions, shredded Cheddar cheese, sliced avocado (optional)

COOKING:

  1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings.
  2. Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  3. Stir in beans, broth, tomatoes, green chilies and chili powder; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 minutes to develop flavors, stirring occasionally. Garnish with Toppings, as desired.
  4. Cook's Tip: Omit green onions and cilantro if serving to early eaters (6-7 months). Toppings like avocado and shredded cheddar cheese provide a great opportunity for providing a variety of taste and texture to this dish for early eaters.
