  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon flour (omit for gluten free)

Instructions

Pressure Cooker

  • Set your pressure cooker to saute, and brown your ground beef along with your diced onion. Once beef is browned, turn the pot off.
  • Add in undrained  canned beans.
  • Pour in tomato juice.
  • Sprinkle spices on top.  Do not stir.

Slow Cooker

  • In a large skillet, brown your ground beef along with your diced onion.
  • Transfer browned beef and onion to a 5qt slow cooker.

Notes

TOMATO JUICE
If using a slow cooker, you can reduce juice to 1 cup for a thicker chili.  If using a pressure cooker - use 2 cups to allow pot to come to pressure and to prevent burning.
