Chili is a great idea! Here's a delicious one: http://food52.com/recipes...
Shepherd's pie is also a great bet, too.

...and here is a list of recipes using ground beef: http://food52.com/recipes...

Meatballs (though you'll probably want to add some pork for more flavor)
shepherd's pie
meatloaf (add pork, too, if possible)
lasagna
chili - yes, I know ground beef in chili is sacrilege to some, but I'm just answering the question ; )

Actually, regarding chili, it's the other way around. Chili aficinados insist on no beans, so beef is fine.

Hi Pierino - I was referring to the contingent that believes only chunks of beef should be used in chili, not ground beef ; )

Also tacos, meatballs, or empanadas.

Add some transglutaminase and make your own 'steak'.

Just a heads up healthwise; supermarket ground beef can be pretty scary stuff. The standard for hamburgers is 80/20, meaning 20% fat. Okay no problem so far. Here's the danger zone; the meat could be parts of upwards of 100 animals. If there is ecoli contamination in one single part it will spread through the entire product. You can grind it yourself to your own fat liking or else find a real butcher who will work from a single animal and do it for you.

I am very cautious about my meat. Only organic

If you cook it until there is no pink left you will kill any Ecoli.
Tonight I used ground meat, browned in a soup pot, with chopped onions, minced garlic, coarsly chopped mushrooms & sliced bell peppers. I added a 28oz can of chopped tomatoes , 1or 2 cups of stock, a few Tbsp each of basil & oregano,black pepper, a splash of red wine & presto: Pizza Soup! Served with croutons & grated Italian cheese, it warmed us up on a cold night.
