Directions

  1. Heat enough olive oil in a large pot to cover the bottom of the pot over high heat; sear beef in hot oil in batches until completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes per batch. Remove browned beef with a slotted spoon to a bowl between batches.
  2. Pour some olive oil into the pot with the browned bits of beef on the bottom; heat until shimmering. Saute onion and garlic in the hot oil until beginning to brown, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Pour red wine into the pan and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Cook until the wine reduces slightly in volume, about 5 minutes.
  4. Pour tomato sauce, chili beans with sauce, white beans, black beans, and kidney beans into the pot; stir. Bring the mixture to a simmer and reduce heat to medium-low. Stir sea salt, cumin, black pepper, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, sugar, garlic powder, coriander, paprika, cinnamon, and nutmeg into the beef mixture. Cook until the beef is very tender, 2 to 3 hours.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • It is important not to overcrowd the meat when searing and browning as you will sweat the meat when there is not enough room for the moisture to cook off and searing/browning to occur; patience is key.
  • Serving ideas: over rice, over mac and cheese (homemade of course), over baked potatoes.
  • This chili stores well in the fridge for 2 to 3 days or in the freezer for several weeks or months in the proper container.
  • If you're in a hurry, increase heat slightly and cook 60 to 90 minutes.
  • Alternately, you can bake this in a casserole dish in an oven set to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), or in a slow cooker.

This chili may be a bit more labor intensive than the standard ground beef or ground turkey chili I often make, but it is so worth it! It is very very delicious and filling. I served it over baked potatoes, topped with a little sharp cheddar, and a side of cornbread muffins. The only thing I did differently was to decrease the cayenne by half because I was concerned too much heat would bother my toddlers. I really recommend trying this yummy recipe!!
