Nickolas' Favorite Beef Chili

Updated: Jan 29, 2021

This is a simple meat chili that’s always a crowd favorite. I made the recipe to please my son who doesn’t like beans in his chili. Serve it with an array of toppings!


Makes 6-8 Servings

Timing: 5 minutes prep, 45 minutes cooking


11⁄2 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon salt, more to taste

1 teaspoon black pepper

11⁄2 tablespoon soy sauce

2 tablespoon garlic powder

1.5 teaspoon cayenne pepper

3 tablespoon chili powder

2 tablespoon cumin

4 sprigs fresh thyme

2 pounds 80/20 ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped into 1⁄4’’ pieces

1 - 28oz can of diced tomatoes

1 – 6oz can of tomato paste

2 cups chicken broth


1. In a large pot on medium heat sauté onion with olive oil for 5-7 minutes or until translucent

2. Add ground beef. Sprinkle all the salt and pepper over the beef and sauté for 6-7 minutes, or until the

beef is browned and cooked through.

3. Remove the excess oil and fat from the pan. Add tomato paste and sauté for 3-5 minutes.

4. Add soy sauce, spices, and diced tomato to the pan and stir to combine. Add chicken broth.

5. Bring to a boil, turn heat to low and let simmer, uncovered, for at least 30 minutes.

6. Serve with your favorite toppings such as sour cream, shredded cheese, and avocado

7. Enjoy!
