Technically, this is an appetizer, and a great one. But, trust me, you can make a meal on this! SAM
2 pounds ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can chopped tomatoes
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 (16-ounce) can kidney beans, drained
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon dried chives
In a large chef’s pan or heavy skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the beef, onion, and garlic until browned. Add the chili powder, cumin, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 1 hour. Pulse the beans 3 or 4 times with an immersion blender to roughly chop and add to the beef mixture. Cook until thoroughly heated. Pour into a chafing dish, top with sour cream and chives, and serve with corn chips.
Makes 20 servings.
