Knowing that a hearty, high protein, low in fat chili is waiting for me at home sometimes gets me through that long workday. The benefit of slow cooking, generally, is that the meat becomes incredibly tender, and that the flavor saturates over time.

The chopped onions, ground cumin, and dried oregano leaves are some basic chili enhancing ingredients that bring out the flavor that captures the taste bud’s undivided attention.
