Directions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a heavy Dutch oven over medium heat. Add beef, and saute, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no pink remains, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer meat to a small bowl. Sprinkle with salt, and set aside.
  2. Drain liquid from pot, and add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Add onion and saute until soft but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, and saute 1 minute more. Stir in chili powder, cumin, oregano and cinnamon. Cook together 1 minute.
  3. Add chicken broth, water, beef, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste and honey. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add beans and lime juice and cook 5 minutes.
