Well y’all, Fall is definitely starting to show her face around here. You know, here in the South, Fall can be a real tease. She shows up with her nice cool temperatures for a day or two and then…poof!…she’s gone again. She brings you a nice crisp morning one day and then the next it’s so hot and muggy you wonder if it isn’t really July. Yep, Fall is a real flirt.

Just about the only constant thing about Fall in the South is football. And you had better believe we take it seriously.

Whether high school or college, allegiances are strong. Mighty strong. And along with football comes tailgating.

Depending on the game’s outcome, the tailgating may just be the best part of the day. Fans gathering together to share food, support their team, and talk trash about the opponent. It’s all part of the football experience.

Add This One to Your Tailgate Lineup

This is a great recipe to take tailgating this weekend. I’ve posted a few chili recipes here in the past – a Vegetable Chili, a White Bean Turkey Chili, and a Quick and Easy Chili (and there are even more linked at the bottom of this post) that are all great recipes, but I think this Black Bean Chili is my new favorite. It’s rich from the tomatoes and spices and has the heartiness of beef and black beans. Great combination.

How to Make Black Bean Chili

Black Bean Chili Meat Mixture

You’ll start by putting a large pot or skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the olive oil followed by the onions, bell pepper, garlic and ground beef. Cook the mixture, stirring often, until the beef is browned. Drain it and return it to the pan.

Spices for Black Bean Chili

I always like to prep and measure my ingredients so that they’re ready before I start a recipe. Because I’m often cooking with one hand and photographing with the other, it helps me avoid mistakes and stay focused on the recipe. Besides I just love seeing all those colorful spices ready to go into the pot. I think they’re lovely on their own.

Add remaining ingredients to Black Bean Chili

After you’ve returned the drained meat mixture to the pan, add the beef broth, diced tomatoes, spices, black beans and tomato paste. Stir well to combine. Bring the pot to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until slightly thickened.

To serve, ladle the chili into bowls and top with sour cream and fresh cilantro. Pass lime wedges.
