  • none Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion (about 1 medium)
  • 2 none garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound sirloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 1/2 cups diced plum tomato (about 6)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 none (15-ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 none (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 none (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium beef broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion, garlic, and beef to pan; cook 5 minutes or until beef is browned, stirring occasionally. Combine beef mixture, tomato, and next 6 ingredients (through broth) in an electric slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 1/2 hours or until beef is tender. Uncover; cook 30 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in salt.
