Lamb is a flavorful switch from typical ground beef in this black-bean chili recipe. If you don't  have ground lamb on hand, you can use beef instead—it still delivers.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a Dutch oven; cook over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain in a colander; pat dry with paper towels. Wipe drippings from pan with a paper towel; return mixture to pan.
