Cook Time45 minutes


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 yellow cooking onion chopped
  • 4 jalapenos sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 4 celery sticks chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chipotle powder
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli
  • 1 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes not drained
  • Optional: One half avocado sliced for topping.


  • Pan fry ground beef on medium heat until brown and set aside in large stockpot.
  • Leave some fat in the pan to fry vegetables.
  • Fry onion, garlic, celery, and jalapeño and season with cumin, chipotle, thyme, oregano and salt until fully cooked.
  • Add this to the ground beef in the stockpot.
  • Add tomato paste and diced tomatoes with juice to the stockpot and stir.
  • Now add green pepper and broccoli last and simmer covered on low for 20 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Let cool for 30 minutes to split into 4 mason jars.
  • Let cool another 30 minutes or until almost room temperature then refrigerate or freeze.


I keep the core and seeds in my jalapeños because every part of the pepper is spicy.  If you cut the center out it will be milder.
