Yields 6 servings.


Spice blend:

  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. coriander
  • 1 Tbsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. cocoa powder


  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic diced/minced
  • 1 kg. ground beef
  • 2 cups or 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, cut in chunks
  • 1 small pepper, cut in chunks
  • 1 cup water or soup stock
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 425-gr. (15-oz.) can of red kidney beans, rinsed


Put all the seasonings into one bowl and mix well, then set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, add the diced onions, and sauté for about 5 min. until the edges are lightly golden. Then add the minced garlic.

Break up the ground beef and add it to the skillet. Mix it in with the onions and garlic until the meat is slightly browned, about 3 min.

Turn your slow cooker to the low setting and add in half of the canned diced tomatoes.

Pour the ground beef mixture into the slow cooker, followed by the spice blend, tomato, and pepper chunks, and mix well. Pour in the water, tomato sauce, and beans. Then cover and let cook for 6 to 8 hours on the low-temperature setting.
