Serves: 6
  • 3 pounds ground beef, chuck
  • 1 large onion, small dice
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 30-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 14-ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 3 tablespoons evoo
  • Kosher Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 full tablespoons Bull Sweet Heat Rub
  • 3 full tablespoons chile powder
  • Suggested toppings: shredded sharp cheddar cheese, thinly sliced green onions, sour cream, sliced fresh pepper of choice, chopped cilantro, fine diced white onion, diced tomatoes, hot sauce of choice, sliced lime, tortilla chips, hot dog or hamburger buns
  1. Preheat a thick bottom pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the oil and ground beef. Stir occasionally and use a whisk to break down the ground beef further into small chunks.
  3. Cook about 15 minutes, until browned and the majority of the fat has cooked off. The ground beef will start to stick to the bottom when at this step for all the moisture has cooked off.
  4. Turn the heat down to medium and add the garlic and onion and cook for about 5 minutes.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Add the tomato paste into the meat and cook for about 2 minutes. Be careful that is does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
  7. Add the Bull Seasoning, stir, and cook for another minute.
  8. Add the crushed tomato, tomato sauce, pinto beans and chicken stock.
  9. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat down to a simmer and leave the pot uncovered.
  10. Allow the chili to cook cook and reduce for about an hour. Make sure to check and stir as it is reducing and simmering to avoid it sticking and potentially burning on the bottom of the pot.
  11. To serve, place the chili into a bowl and allow your guests to add their topping of choice! Don’t forget the antacids!
