Drain off as much of the grease from the pot as possible and return it to the heat. Stir in the the kidney beans, pinto beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth, and taco seasoning mix. Bring to a simmer over MEDIUM-HIGH heat, then reduce heat to LOW, cover, and simmer for 1 hour.
  2. Stir in the frozen corn and let the chili simmer, uncovered, for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Serve with optional toppings.
Slow Cooker Method:
  1. After cooking the beef, onion, jalapeno, and garlic as directed, drain it well and transfer the mixture to a 6 quart slow cooker. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth, and taco seasoning mix (reserve beans and corn for later), Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours. 

  2. Stir in the beans and frozen corn. Cover and cook on LOW for an additional 30 to 60 minutes.
