  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1 onion diced
  • 6 cloves of garlic whole
  • 1 dried ancho chili omit if you can't find it or if you don't like heat
  • 2 cups dry red wine like a cabernet or merlot
  • 1 28 ounce can tomato puree
  • 1 16 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 cups red beans rinsed and drained or dried and prepared at home
  • 1 tablespoon chili seasoning
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard


  • Over medium heat, brown meat with onion. Once meat is browned, drain fat.
  • Add in red wine and deglaze pan. Let simmer for 5 minutes, for alcohol to evaporate. 
  • Add remaining ingredients to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low and simmer for 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • Before serving, fish out the dried pepper and discard.
  • I leave the garlic cloves in the chili because at this point they are tender and sweet.
