Chili Con Carne

1 cup frozen seasoning blend (contains diced onions, green/red peppers, celery and parsley)
1 1/2 lb lean ground beef, 7% fat
1 teaspoon beef base
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 (4.5-oz) can chopped green chilies

2 (16-oz) cans pinto beans
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 cup refried beans (1/2 can)

Steps

  1. Preheat large saucepot on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Coat beef with spray, then and add to pan; brown 5–7 minutes, stirring to crumble meat, or until no pink remains.
