  1. Cook the Meat: In a large pot, heat a splash of olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground beef and cook until browned. Drain excess fat.

  2. Sauté the Vegetables: In the same pot, add chopped onions, garlic, and red bell pepper. Sauté until the onions are translucent and the peppers are soft.

  3. Combine Ingredients: Add the red kidney beans, black beans, crushed tomatoes, and tomato paste to the pot. Stir well to combine.

  4. Season: Pour in the beef broth, and then add chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Stir well.

  5. Simmer: Bring the chili to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for about 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally. The chili should thicken and flavors will meld together.

  6. Serve: Once the chili is cooked and thickened, taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Serve hot in bowls, garnished with green onions, diced tomatoes, a dollop of sour cream, and a sprinkle of grated cheddar cheese.
