  1. Add oil and onions to a large frying pan, heated on medium heat.
  2. After frying the onions, add the ground beef and fry until well-done. Salt the beef to taste.
  3. Just before the beef is done, mince the garlic cloves and add to the pan.
  4. Add the water, beans and tomato paste and mix.
  5. Add chili powder, oregano, cumin, allspice or peppercorns, basil leaves, Worcestershire, and more salt to the pan. Mix thoroughly.
  6. Once the mix is boiling, cover the pan, and stew at low heat about 45 - 60 minutes, until thick but not too dry.
  7. Top with freshly chopped cilantro.

Serves 2 - 4.
