  • 1 lbs extra lean ground beef (or 1 x 14 oz. can kidney beans)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 14 oz. crushed tomatoes
  • 1 14 oz. tomato sauce
  • 1 14 oz. canned or frozen corn
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika (mild or sweet preferred)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder (or one garlic clove, minced)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat and add ground beef. Cook for 5-7 minutes until beef has browned, breaking up beef with a wooden spoon.

  2. Add onion and cook for 2 minutes until starting to soften. Add cumin, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and stir to combine.

  3. Add crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook for about 5 minutes. Add corn and cook for 2 more minutes or until corn is cooked through.

  4. Serve with grated cheese, sour cream, avocado slices, green onion slices, cilantro leaves, or lime wedges if desired.
