Taco Black Bean Chili is a hot and spicy chili you will adore! This one uses lean ground beef, diced tomatoes with green chilies, tomato paste, onions, bell peppers, kidney beans and black beans. It also uses some of my Homemade Taco Seasoning which flavors everything so wonderfully.
Back in August, the brother of our pastor’s wife was going through extensive testing. She was up visiting him all day at the hospital so I offered to bring a meal. As it happened, the night before we had a Taco Night at our church and our Sunday school class was supposed to bring seasoned taco meat.
I cooked up about ten pounds of meat but ended up with about half of it left over. I was wondering how I was going to use up all this extra taco meat, so I decided to use it in a recipe for this chili. I served it with Buttermilk Cornbread and Nutella Muffins. They loved everything.
If you love hot and spicy chili then you’ve got to give Taco Black Bean Chili a try. It’s great served with cheese, sour cream, fresh cilantro or even green onions. Or you can live dangerously and add some sliced fresh jalapeno peppers! Dip some cornbread into the chili and you have comfort food at its finest.
Taco Black Bean Chili is awesome!
If you enjoy hot and spicy chili you’ll love this combination of flavors.
If you want your chili really spicy, add some sliced jalapenos!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients. The bowl contains lean ground beef mixed with Homemade Taco Seasoning.
Brown ground beef. Add taco seasoning and stir to combine. Place ground beef mixture in crockpot. Add diced tomatoes with chilies, tomato paste, diced onions, sliced miniature bell peppers or regular bell pepper, garlic, seasonings and broth.
Cook on low heat about 3 hours.
Add rinsed and drained kidney beans and black beans. Stir to combine.
Heat through about 10-15 minutes.
This chili is thick and chunky.
Garnish Taco Black Bean Chili with cheese, sour cream, or freshly chopped cilantro if desired.
