  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 (14 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (4 oz) can mild diced green chiles
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, with liquid
  • 2 cups beef broth (unsalted or low sodium)
  • 2 heaping cups diced russet or golden potatoes
  • 1 cup diced celery (about 4 stalks)
  • 1 cup peeled and chopped carrots (about 4 medium sized long carrots)
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley (or 1 tbsp dried parsley)
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. In a large pot over medium high heat, heat oil and garlic until garlic is fragrant. Add the ground beef and begin to brown. Halfway through browning, add in the diced onion and incorporate into the beef
  2. Once the beef is browned, drain the grease and return the beef and onion into pot, still over medium-high heat. Add the canned items, white wine vinegar and spices and stir into the beef and onion to mix
  3. Add the vegetables, parsley and broth and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and then reduce heat to medium. Cover and let simmer for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are cooked through


  • Slow Cooker Instructions: First, follow the same steps to brown the beef and onions. After you drain the grease, place the ground beef into the slow cooker instead of back into the pot. Then, add in all of the remaining ingredients and spices. Stir well to combine everything, place the lid on the slow cooker, and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours.
