2 tablespoons Olive Scene Harissa Olive Oil, divided
2 lb ground chuck
1 medium onion, chopped
3 medium carrots, chopped
4 cloves garlic, diced
1 large yellow bell pepper, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
28 oz can diced or chopped tomatoes
28 oz can kidney, cannellini, or black beans, or a combination
1 can corn
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 teaspoons sea salt (or omit the herbs and add 2 teaspoons seasoned herb salt- like our Seasonello)
¼ cup The Olive Scene Espresso Balsamic Vinegar
grated white and yellow cheddar cheese, or taco cheese (optional)
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large pot.
Add meat and sauté until brown.
Remove from pot with slotted spoon.
Heat another tablespoon oil.
Add onions, celery, carrots, bell pepper and garlic; sauté until onions are translucent, and vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.
Add tomatoes, beans, corn, herbs, salt and balsamic vinegar.
Bring to a boil. Cover, lower heat, and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
Serve with grated cheese if desired, crusty bread or crackers.
