About the Recipe



  • 7 oz ground beef

  • 2 tbsp onion finely chopped

  • 3/4 cup fat free beef broth 

  • 1 cup diced tomatoes canned (fire roasted is yummiest!)

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp pepper

  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

  • 1/2 tsp dried basil

  • 1/2 tsp chili powder

  • 1/4 tsp paprika

  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper 

  • 1 tbsp tomato paste 

  • chopped parsley as garnish


In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, add onion. Top with 1/4 cup beef broth and cook down until onions are tender 5 min.

Add beef and cook until browned.

Add beef and onion mix to an Instant Pot. Add remaining 1/2 cup beef broths and all other ingredients. Stir to combine.

Cook under pressure for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.

Batch cooking tip or Alternate Cooking Method Option:

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can cook this in a medium pot. On Step 3, bring the chili to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cover and simmer for approximately 20 minutes


If you like a spicier chili, add more cayenne pepper at the end of cooking for more heat. For you brave souls (not me).

If you can't find a suitable fat free beef stock, you can sub water. The beef broth just helps add additional flavor.

Make a double batch and divide into four freezer bags for individual portions to last the entire week.
