  • 1 pound Ground Beef (96% lean)
  • 1 medium green or red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 can (15 ounces) reduced-sodium or regular black beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounce) diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) light beer or 1-1/2 cups reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1 packet (1-1/4 ounces) reduced-sodium or regular chili seasoning mix
Toppings:
  • Sliced cherry tomatoes, sliced green onions, sliced Serrano or jalapeño peppers, chopped onions, lime wedges and tortilla chips (optional)

Cooking:

  1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef and bell pepper; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking beef into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160ºF. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
