1 tbsp. Chili powder
tsp. Garlic powder
tsp. Onion powder
tsp. Crushed red pepper flakes
tsp. Dried oregano
tsp. Paprika
2 tsp. Ground cumin
1 tsp. Salt (I omit this)
1 tsp. Black pepper
1 tsp. Canola oil
cup Chopped onion
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 lbs. Extra-lean ground beef (I use 96/4)
3 cups Unsalted beef stock
1 (28 oz.) can Crushed tomatoes
3 oz. Reduced fat cream cheese, cut into cubes (Neufchatel)
1 cup Frozen corn kernels (I use "fire roasted")
1 cups Black beans, drained and rinsed

Optional (for topping): Avocado, cilantro, green onion, low-fat cheese, tortilla strips/chips

1. Combine the chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper, oregano, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper in a bowl and, stir to combine. Set aside.

2. Pour the canola oil into a soup pot or Dutch oven and bring to medium-high heat. Add the onions and stir to coat. Cook , stirring occasionally, until the onions are softened. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 30-60 seconds. Add the ground beef and stir together. Cook, breaking the meat up into small pieces, until the meat is cooked through. Add the spice mixture from step 1 and stir to coat the meat.

3. Add the broth and crushed tomatoes and increase the heat to bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
