  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
  • 2 each Garlic, clove
  • 2 pepper Jalapeno Peppers
  • 2 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 0 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/4 tsp Red or Cayenne Pepper
  • 0 1/4 tsp Black Pepper, ground
  • 0 1/8 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 lb Ground Beef (80% Lean / 20% Fat)
  • 1 14.5 oz can Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cup, shredded Monterey Jack Cheese


  1. Heat broiler. In a deep 9 or 10-inch oven-proof skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat for 1 minute.
  2. Add chopped onion; cook until golden, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally and reducing heat to medium if needed to prevent scorching. Add minced or pressed garlic and diced jalapeños; cook 30 seconds, stirring until fragrant.
  3. Add chili powder, cumin, salt, red pepper, black pepper, and cinnamon; stir to coat the vegetables. Add ground beef and cook until browned, about 6-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain excess liquid from pan.
  4. Add tomatoes, and bring to a boil. Sprinkle cheese over top. Place 5 inches from heating element, and broil just until melted, 2-3 minutes. One serving is about 3/4 cup of chili.

Note: for milder chili, remove the seeds and ribs of the jalapenos before dicing.
