30-Minute Chunky Beef and Corn Chili
Serve sliced jicama, edged with chili powder or chopped cilantro, and crisp tortilla chips for a delicious texture contrast to this hearty chili.

3 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
