Calories: 457 kcal


Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup diced onions
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 pounds ground beef or venison
  • 3 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp Mexican oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ancho chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1 cup beef bone broth
  • 14.5 oz crushed fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro

Instructions

  1. Add olive oil to dutch oven and heat on medium. Add onions and cook 3-5 minutes until translucent. Add garlic and cook an additional minute.
  2. Add the ground beef/venison and cook until meat is fully browned, breaking up the meat as it cooks. About 8-10 minutes.

  3. Add the next 11 ingredients through chipotle chili powder and mix well.
  4. Add beef bone broth, fire roasted tomatoes, and bay leaf. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer covered for 30 minutes, stirring occasional to make sure meat isn’t sticking to bottom of pan.
  5. Add apple cider vinegar, lime juice, and chopped cilantro. Simmer uncovered for an addition 10 minutes or more for even better flavor. If chili thickens too much, add additional beef bone broth.

  6. Serve with toppings like shredded cheddar cheese, diced onions, chopped cilantro, and sour cream as desired.

Recipe Notes

For the best taste and texture, simmer for an hour. Be sure to stir occasionally and watch to see if more beef broth is needed if chili thickens too much.
