total time: 10 hours

recipe by: 

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup dried pinto beans
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 medium bell pepper, diced
  • 4 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 TBSP tomato paste
  • 2 TBSP ancho chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 12 ounces dried macaroni
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded





Directions

  1. Rinse the pinto beans and place them in a large bowl with 2 cups of water. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.

  2. Drain the beans and set aside.

  3. Add the ground beef to a dutch oven over medium high heat. Cook the beef until no longer pink, breaking it up as it cooks, about 6 minutes. Drain any excess fat.

  4. Add the onion, bell pepper, and jalapeno to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes.

  5. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 10 seconds.

  6. Add the tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, oregano, 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper. Stir and cook for 1 minute.

  7. Add the beef broth and pinto beans to the pan and bring to a boil.

  8. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender, about 90 minutes.

  9. Remove the lid and reduce the heat to low, simmer uncovered while the macaroni cooks.

  10. Cook your macaroni in a separate pot according to package directions.

  11. Drain the macaroni and stir it into the chili. Add the cheddar cheese and stir until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
