4. Add crushed tomatoes, chipotle pepper paste, cilantro, oregano, and ground cumin and mix through.

5. Pour in the beef stock and season with salt and pepper.

7. About 10 minutes before the chili is done, add the red pinto beans (optional) and continue simmering until they are heated.

8. Serve by topping with garnishes such as shredded cheese, sliced green onion, or chopped cilantro. Enjoy!
