Beef and Bean Chili

I got this recipe from my very first WW cookbook.  One that has the old points system.  But it’s so good.

Makes 4 servings

4 tsp olive oil

2 onions, chopped

1 carrot, chopped

1 celery stalk, chopped

1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp jalapeno, chopped

3/4 pound lean ground beef

1 Tbsp chili powder

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp ground coriander

1 (14 1/2 oz) can diced tomatoes

1 (16 oz) can pinto or red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 tsp salt

pinch of pepper

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 cup fat-free sour cream

1/4 cup chopped red onion

1. In a large dutch oven or saucepan, heat the oil.  Saute the onions, carrot, celery, bell pepper, garlic, and jalapeno pepper until the onions are translucent, about 15 minutes.  Add the beef and cook until no longer pin.  Stir in the chili powder, cumin, oregano, and coriander; cook, stirring, 1 minute.

2. Add the tomatoes, beans, salt and pepper; bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer gently, partially covered, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are blended, about 20 minutes.  Stir in the cilantro.  Serve, topped with the sour cream, red onion, and additional cilantro.
