July 18, 2016
by Sam Stevens

This classic bean chili recipe uses a luscious spice mix of cumin, sweet paprika, oregano, and red chile. Try out different combinations of beans to compose the dish to your liking. Pink and white Goya beans bring to mind a festive summer barbecue. And feel free to leave out the beef if you want to make it vegetarian.



• 3 onions, finely diced
• 3 tbsp vegetable oil
• 4 garlic cloves, chopped
• 4 tsp cumin
• 2 tsp dried mexican oregano
• 4 tsp sweet paprika
• 3 tsp ground red chile
• 1-1/2 tsp salt
• 32 oz can chopped tomatoes
• 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
• 3 15.5 oz cans Goya beans
• dash of red wine vinegar
• 1 lb ground beef


Brown ground beef together with onions over medium heat, for 7-8 minutes. Add the garlic and the spice mix alone. Lower the heat. and cook until the onions are soft - another 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and juice, and the cilantro. Simmer for 15 minutes. 

Add the beans and enough boiling water to cover the beans by 1 inch. Return to boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

And that's it! Taste for seasoning and add a dash of vinegar.

Serves 4.
