Pastene Chili


Serves 5-6
1 lbground beef
1 largeonion, diced
1Pastene Chipotle Pepper in Adobo Sauce, chopped finely
2 tspPastene Minced Garlic
2 cupswater, room temperature
1 (28 ounce) canPastene Kitchen Ready Tomatoes
1 (14 ounce)Pastene Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
1 tspcayenne pepper
2 Tbsplight brown sugar
1 cupshredded cheese
4-6Pastene Jalapeno Peppers (for topping)


  • Heat a large pot over medium heat. When hot, add the ground beef, onion, salt, chipotle peppers, and cayenne. Cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until the meat is no longer pink, 7 to 9 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 additional minute.
  • Add 2 cups water, canned tomatoes, red kidney beans, and brown sugar and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the chili thickens and the liquid reduces slightly, 1-2 hours. The chili tastes better the longer you let the flavors mingle.
  • Top with cheese and Pastene Sliced Jalapenos (optional) and serve with corn tortilla chips.
  • Chef’s Note: A healthy alternative for this recipe is to substitute ground turkey for ground beef!
