Simple Beef Chili Recipe

Mason Dixon BBQ
Course Main Course
Cuisine Mexican


  • 1/4 cup olive oil divided
  • 2-1/2 pounds lean ground beef 93%
  • 1 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tablespoons Malcom's Bonafide Chili Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons Malcom's Grande Gringo Mexican Seasoning


  • Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil to a heavy bottomed pot or dutch oven over medium heat, then add the ground beef and 4 tablespoons of Malcom’s Bonafide Chili Seasoning. Brown the beef, breaking it up into small crumbles as it cooks.
  • Drain the beef and any grease from the pot and transfer the beef to a bowl.
  • Turn the heat down to low, then add the other 2 tablespoons of olive oil along with the onions and the tomato paste. Cook the onion/tomato paste mixture for 7–8 minutes or until browned, frequently stirring so they don’t burn.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of Malcom’s Grande Gringo, stirring it into the onions and Worcestershire sauce, then add the flour and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the beef back to the pot, then pour in the broth and stir. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat down to a simmer for 1-1/2 hours.
  • Taste for seasonings, then serve as-is or on hot dogs, hamburgers, or over french fries!
