  • Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds ground beef

  1. Heat olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and onion and cook until beef has browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Drain excess fat.

  3. Remove from heat and top with cheese. Cover until cheese has melted, about 2 minutes, and then stir to mix throughout.
  4. Serve immediately.
