2. Start Browning the Meat

Break one pound of 90-percent lean ground beef into large chunks and add it to the pan. Use a wooden spoon to break the chunks into smaller pieces to speed up the cooking process. Make the pieces as uniform as possible to ensure they cook evenly. Other possible meat options:

  • Swap out the ground beef for beef chuck for a more flavorful chili
  • Short ribs can also be substituted for the ground beef for a richer, heavier taste
  • Choose turkey as your meat source for a healthier, leaner option
