  • 1 can (15 ounces) reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) unsalted beef broth
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) unsalted diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilies or sliced jalapeño peppers
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
Toppings:
  • Sour cream, chopped fresh cilantro, sliced green onions, shredded Cheddar cheese, sliced avocado (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  2. Stir in beans, broth, tomatoes, green chilies and chili powder; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 minutes to develop flavors, stirring occasionally. Garnish with Toppings, as desired.
