1 bulb garlic, minced (10-12 cloves)
1 lb beef chuck, cut into 1/2" chunks
2 lbs ground beef
1 lb sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
3 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or less depending on heat)
2 (8 oz cans) tomato sauce
1 (14.5 oz can) diced tomatoes
1 (6 oz can) tomato paste
2 cups low-sodium chicken or beef broth
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 (15 oz cans) black beans, rinsed and drained
2 (15 oz cans) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
cheddar cheese, sour cream, chips and diced avocado for toppings


  • Preheat the oven to broil (500ºF) Set an oven rack at the top, directly under the broiler. Spread out the poblano peppers on a tray, and roast for 15-20 minutes, turning them every 5 minutes. Place the peppers in a bowl and tightly cover with plastic wrap. Let them steam for 15 minutes and then peel off the skin. Remove the seeds and membranes and chop.
  • Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat and add bacon, cooking until almost crisp. Remove the bacon and reserve about 1/4 cup of bacon grease.
  • Add the chopped poblanos, onions, red bell peppers and jalapeños, cooking for about 5 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Transfer the cooked veggies to a bowl and set aside.
  • With the Dutch oven still on medium-high heat, add the beef chuck and brown on all sides, about 4 minutes. Stir in the ground beef and sausage. Break it up with a spoon and cook for 7-10 minutes or until no longer pink. Add the veggies as well as the bacon back in.
  • Add chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, coriander, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper and cook for another minute.
  • Stir in tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, broth and Worcestershire sauce. Add beans and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cook for 2 hours, uncovered. Top with favorite toppings.
