Why I Love This Recipe

This hot and spicy chili recipe is topped with an avocado salsa as a cooling touch.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 large (1 cup) onion, chopped
2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed, drained
2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans diced tomatoes with zesty mild green chiles
1 (28-ounce) can fire roasted crushed tomatoes or crushed tomatoes
1 cup chipotle salsa or sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Avocado Salsa Ingredients:
1 large avocado, peeled, pitted, diced
2 tablespoons minced red onion
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt

Toppings Ingredients:
LAND O LAKES® Sour Cream, if desired
LAND O LAKES® Cheddar Cheese, if desired
Chopped green onions, if desired
Tortilla chips, if desired


Place ground beef and onions in 10-inch skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is browned (7 to 10 minutes). Drain off liquid. Place in slow cooker.

Add all remaining chili ingredients. Cover; cook on Low heat setting for 6 to 8 hours, or on High heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.

Just before serving, combine all salsa ingredients except sour cream in small bowl.

To serve, spoon chili into individual serving bowls; top with avocado salsa. Serve with toppings as desired.

Recipe Tip

This chili is even better the next day! The avocado salsa is best prepared just before serving.

Recipe Tip:

Chipotle peppers are large, dried, smoked jalapeño peppers. They are sweet in flavor with tobacco and chocolate tones, a Brazil nut finish and a subtle, deep, rounded heat.
