Simply Sensational Chili

Hearty Tex-Mex Style Chili

Our ground beef-and-pinto bean chili is a hearty, south-of-the-border classic. Perfectly seasoned with fresh jalapeño peppers, cumin, and GOYA® seasonings, it’s medium spicy, and maximum tasty!

Top with chopped onion, Monterey Jack cheese, and a dollop of sour cream for a sensational, all-season crowd-pleaser.

Serves 4

Prep time: 35 min.

Total time: 1 hr., 50 min.


2 tbsp. GOYA® Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)

½ green bell pepper, chopped (about ½ cup)

1 GOYA® Whole Pickled Jalapeño Pepper, seeded and roughly chopped

2 tsp. GOYA® Minced Garlic or 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 lb. ground beef (80% lean)

GOYA® Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning with Pepper, to taste

1 tbsp. chili powder

1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro

1 tbsp. ground cumin

1 can (28 oz.) whole tomatoes, chopped

1 packet GOYA® Cubitos Beef Bouillon

1 packet Sazón GOYA® with Coriander and Annatto

1 can (15.5 oz.) GOYA® Pinto Beans, or GOYA® Low-Sodium Pinto Beans, undrained

Shredded Monterey jack cheese (optional)

Sour cream (optional)

Finely chopped white onions (optional)


1. Heat oil in medium, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add onions, peppers and garlic; cook until vegetables are soft, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Season meat with Adobo. Add meat to the pot, breaking into small pieces with a wooden spoon. Cook until browned, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Stir in chili powder, cilantro and cumin; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more.
2. Add 1 cup water, chopped tomatoes (with liquid), beef bouillon and Sazón to pot. Bring tomato mixture to boil. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until mixture thickens and flavors come together, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour. Stir in beans. Cook until heated through, about 15 minutes more.
3. Divide chili among serving bowls. Garnish with cheese, sour cream and onions, if desired.
Tip By La Cocina Goya

Control the Spiciness in your Pot of Chili

A good rule of thumb when working with a spicy chile, like a jalapeño: The finer you dice the pepper, the more surface area is exposed, and in turn, the more of the spicy oils it releases. Here, we roughly chop the pepper which creates a medium spicy effect. For an even hotter end product, cut the pieces into a very fine dice. Care for a mild, background spice? Keep the chile whole, and fish it out at the end.
