I needed a last minute dinner so I took ground beef from the freezer and raided my pantry to make this fantastic quick full-flavored chili. Serve with chopped red onions, avocado and shredded reduced-fat cheese.
Makes 4 heaping (1-cup) servings
1 pound ground sirloin
1 onion, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can fat-free chicken broth
1 (10 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chilies
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
Dash ground cinnamon
Salt and pepper to taste
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1. In large nonstick pot, cook meat and onion until done; drain off any excess fat.
2. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and cook over low heat about 10 minutes.
