Michelle’s Round-Up Chili

Like most round-up recipes, this chili is best eaten after morning of hard work with a big crew of family and friends.

  • 3 onions, chopped
  • 1 T cooking oil
  • 5 T chili powder
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 t whole cumin
  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes, fresh or canned
  • 4 cups cooked beans – pinto, black, kidney or a combination
  • 4 cups water
  • salt to taste


Saute onions in cooking oil until softened. Add chili powder, garlic and cumin. Cook for 3 minutes. Add ground beef and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently until ground beef is browned. Add tomato paste, tomatoes, beans and water. Cover and cook for 1/2 hour. Check for seasoning. Serve over rice in local Hawaiʻi style.
