Chili Con Carne



1. In a large saucepan or cast-iron casserole dish, heat the oil and sauté the onion, celery and garlic. Don’t allow it to brown.

2. Add the minced beef and sauté for about ten minutes. There should be no traces of pink left in the meat. Skim some of the fat if desired.

3. Add the cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper and tomato paste. Mix well and cook for a few minutes.

4. Add the diced tomatoes and beans and mix well. Bring to a simmer and add a little salt and pepper to taste. Cover and simmer for about 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the mixture is too runny, remove the lid and continue to cook down for a few minutes.
