Vegetarian Chili with Beef

3 Pounds grass-fed Ground Beef - chuck or round
2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Large yellow onion - chopped
1 Large Yellow bell pepper - chopped (green bell pepper is fine, I just don’t care for them)
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
3 Banana Peppers, seeded, sliced into strips. (Some hotter peppers like serrano may be substituted)
3 or 4 Small Zucchini, diced into 3/4 in. chunks
1 bag of frozen fire-roasted Corn Kernels
1 Pound of baby portobello Mushrooms washed and thickly sliced
1/2 Cup fresh Cilantro - finely chopped
4 Tablespoons Chili powder
2 Tablespoons ground Cumin
2 Tablespoons dried Oregano
2 teaspoons salt - more may be needed at end of preparation - to taste
1 teaspoon Sriracha Sauce
1 28 oz. can whole tomatoes drained and chopped
(or three cans diced Tomatoes)
2 15 oz. cans of black beans
1 (16-ounce) can tomato sauce
16 oz. beef stock (use the tomato sauce can to measure)

Allow individuals to garnish as they wish with grated cheddar cheese, sour cream, green onions, Sriracha and/or chives

Remember, it’s Chili. Nothing about Chili is set in stone. Add or delete items as you see fit.


In a large pot with a heavy bottom, brown the ground beef in batches, adding a little salt and freshly ground black pepper as you cook each batch, drain well and set aside. Remove the fat from browning the ground beef from the pot and add the coconut oil and olive oil and over medium-heat, add the chopped onions and garlic and stir until the onions are about half-softened. Increase the heat to Medium-High and add the chopped bell pepper and/or banana peppers and stir-fry until the bell pepper softens. Add the zucchini, corn, and mushrooms, and continue to cook until the zucchini looks like it is softening and becoming tender. Add the chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt and stir well to season all the vegetables. Add the diced tomatoes and stir to combine. Add the ground beef, black beans, tomato sauce, and beef stock and stir as it returns to a boil. Once it does, reduce the heat to a simmer and stir once in a while. Do not let it return to a boil or even a heavy simmer.
