For the Chili:

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper diced
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper seeded and finely chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • 6 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cumin powder
  • 2 teaspoons ancho chile powder or regular chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 28- fl oz can crushed tomatoes preferably fire-roasted
  • 1 chipotle pepper packed in adobo finely chopped
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 2 bay leaves

For the Baked Potatoes:

  • 4 medium russet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • Kosher salt

For Serving:

  • 1 medium tomato seeded and diced
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 4 tablespoons Cashew Queso store-bought or homemade


For the Chili:

  • Preheat a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add avocado oil and heat until shimmering. Loosely form the beef into large patties and brown on both sides, around 12 minutes total. Transfer beef to a bowl and set aside.
  • Add onions, green pepper and jalapeño to the pot. Season with a pinch of salt and cook, stirring, until onions are translucent, around 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook 60 seconds. Add cumin, ancho chile powder, chipotle chile powder, cinnamon, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Cook, stirring, for 60 seconds.
  • Return beef to pot and crumble it using a potato masher or spatula. Add crushed tomatoes, chipotle pepper, chicken stock and bay leaves and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, cover with a lid and cook 1 hours. Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt as desired.

For the Baked Potatoes:

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Using a fork, prick holes all over each potato. Massage all over with avocado oil and season with salt. Place the potatoes onto a sheet pan and cook until fork-tender, around 60 minutes.

To Serve:

  • Slice each baked potato in half and spread them open using your hands or two forks. Spoon in chili, top with cashew queso, tomatoes, green onion and cilantro. Serve immediately.
