Grass-Fed Beef, Black Bean Chili – Recipe

This is the chili recipe that I made for my family last night. It received RAVE reviews…in fact, my husband said it was my best chili recipe yet!

I served it with grated raw white cheddar cheese, avocado, roasted jalapeno’s (roasted them whole until blackened on the grill and then sliced) and some organic classic round crackers.


  • 2 lbs grass-fed beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 – 15 oz cans organic black beans, with liquid
  • 2 – 15 oz cans organic tomato sauce
  • 1 – 28 oz can organic diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced green chilis
  • diced jalapeno’s to taste
  • 2 tsp cumin powder
  • 3 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 – 12oz beer (I used Yuengling, light lager – you could just substitute water but I like the flavor the beer imparts)

Brown the ground beef; drain off the fat. Saute the onions and celery in the pan drippings just to begin to soften. In a large pot, combine meat and all the remaining ingredients. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Stir every 15 minutes for 2-3 hours. Enjoy!

Great nutrition and warmth for a chilly winter evening!
