GoldenBrown's Spicy Black Bean Chili

    • 1 lb ground sirloin
    • 1/2 of medium white onion - diced
    • 2 large cloves of garlic - minced
    • 2 large tomatoes - diced
    • 1 can of black beans - drained and rinsed
    • 1 15oz can of low sodium tomato sauce
    • 1 cup of water
    • 1/4 cup chili powder
    • 1 tbls masa flour
    • 1 tbls black pepper
    • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
    • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    • 1/2 tsp paprika
    • 1 1/4 tsp kosher salt

    In a large pot, brown the sirloin. Add the onions and garlic. Cook over medium low heat for about 7 minutes. Add all of the spices except for the salt and flour. Stir until the meat and onions are thickly coated. Add the tomato sauce and stir in the water. Add the tomatoes and beans. Simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes. Add the salt to taste. To thicken, add in the flour using a sifter to avoid lumps....OR you can add a tablespoon of the chili into a small bowl and add the flour. Mix until it is a thick paste, then stir into the large pot of chili. Simmer for another 20 minutes and continuously stir.

    Serve while hot with some sharp cheddar and diced onions. Or whatever else you like!
