  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 17 oz lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 can (14 oz) tomatoes, with their juice
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Mexican chili powder, or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 can (14 oz) red kidney beans, drained


Heat oil on high in a large deep skillet. Fry onion and garlic for 1 to 2 minutes.

Add beef stirring constantly until well browned. Note: Beef should be well cooked until no longer pink. Drain the fat.

Stir in remaining ingredients. When boiling, reduce to low heat, cover and simmer (cooking gently at a level where tiny bubbles rise to the surface) for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.


Serve over baked potatoes, rice or in taco shells. Accompany with a salad.
