One-pot dishes are great when you’re short on time and energy. This chili can be made as fiery as you want and can be served with rice, tacos or flour tortillas with shredded cheese and guacamole. It also freezes well for easy future dinners.

Ingredients (serves 4):
½ pound of lean ground beef
1 Tbsp of oil
1 onion (diced)
1 clove garlic
1 14oz can chopped tomatoes
½ can (3oz) tomato paste
1 cup mushrooms
1 red bell pepper sliced
½ tsp chili powder
½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp ground cilantro
1 14oz can of kidney beans, drained
1 chopped chili pepper (if desired)
salt and pepper to taste

Method:
Saute the onions and garlic in a pan over a medium heat until they become translucent. Add the ground beef and stir until browned (about five minutes), then add the spices and chili (if using) and mix thoroughly. Add the tomato paste and canned tomatoes and simmer gently for around 10 to 15 minutes. Add the bell peppers, mushrooms and kidney beans and cook for a further five to 10 minutes. Serve as desired.

    Thank you for posting these recipes. My lil sis was just diagnosed with breast cancer last Friday. We are ready to fight in every way possible.

  2. American Cancer Society; you’ve got to be kidding me!! Pastas and other carbs turn into sugars which feed cancer. Plus, you can load up on meats or fruits either.
    I will continue to look for a reliable source.

      it is a misconception that sugar feeds cancer- I am a dietitian and learned that this is a myth while I was doing my oncology rotation at the hospital.

    • Dan Morich says:

      Sugars don’t “feed cancer” – that’s an old wives tale that is spread by bad posts like yours. Please don’t spread false pseudoscience and mislead people, especially the ill who are searching for things to believe.
