Cheesy Three Bean Chili


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large sweet onion (roughly chopped)
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 28 oz diced tomatoes
  • 15 oz canned black beans (drained)
  • 15 oz canned pinto beans (drained)
  • 15 oz canned kidney beans (drained)
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp Smokehouse
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  1. Add the ground beef to a large stock pot and cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes while stirring often. Crumble the meat as it cooks with a spoon or spatula.
  2. Add the onion and SalterieOne West Blend and continue cooking for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, beef broth, beans and balsamic, stir to combine and continue cooking for 15 minutes.
  4. Stir in cheese and continue cooking until melted. 


  1. Don't have all three kinds of beans in the pantry? No worries! Substitute equal amounts of whatever beans you have for a different, but still satisfying chili.
  2. Serve with tortilla chips or corn bread muffins and a garden salad for a fresh, healthy and filling meal.
  3. Add a dollop of sour cream and chopped scallions to the top of each bowl for a little added flavor and visual pizzazz!
