Re: Looking for your favorite chili recipe

We get raving reviews when we make this. The best part, it's so easy!

1 lb ground beef
1 onion chopped
1 t. oil
15 oz can diced tomatoes
10 3/4 oz can tomato soup
15 oz can kidney beans drained
salt to taste
1/8 t. pepper
1/4 t. cumin
1/2 t. chili powder

Brown ground beef and onion together in oil. Drain ( I don't use the oil). Add remaining ingrediants and heat till warmed through. Makes 4-6 servings.

I personally like to brown the beef and onion, then throw all the ingrediants in the crockpot on low for a few hours. It's best the second day!

p.s. we love to make these crackers to eat on the side with it.

Re: Looking for your favorite chili recipe

I make "cincinnati chili" and I don't measure ingredients, I just ballpark it... as y ou can see by my not so precise recipe.

beef/onions/greenpeppers/just a small amount of garlic browned...and drained.

add tomatoes (i use whole that i "scissor" while in the can) , tomato sauce, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper and basil.

let this simmer for a while and taste to make sure your seasoning is good for you.

shortly before serving...melt an ounce or so of unsweetened baking chocolate into it (it sounds crazy, but it tastes really good, not really sweet at all)

make up a batch of noodles (we use farfalle) and heat up some kidney beans

to serve, make a ring of noodles, and fill the inside of the ring with the chili and then add beans on top of the whole thing. garnish with some diced onions and grated cheddar cheese.

I'm not a fan of chili, but this stuff is great. even my kid chows it down.

Re: Looking for your favorite chili recipe

This is really thick chili...

1-2 lbs beef stew type meat (NOT ground meat)
3-4 cans beans (I like black beans, kidney beans, pinto)
1 can/bottle beer
large can crushed tomatoes (28 oz I believe)
one medium onion chopped
1-2 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste
chili powder to taste (don't skimp on chili powder, get the really good stuff WITHOUT salt added, you won't regret it!!)
garlic


Brown stew meat, onion, and garlic. Add in spices to brown them, then add in rest of ingredients. Simmer a few hours to let alcohol cook off and for the meat to get tender. I like to serve this with corn chips, sour cream, and shredded cheese. My husband likes to add jalapenos to his chili

Re: Looking for your favorite chili recipe

This is my super easy chili (because I don't always have fresh veggies on hand).

1-1.5 lbs ground beef or turkey
1 jar chunky salsa
1 small can tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
1 medium can diced tomatoes (undrained)
1 medium can dark red kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
1 medium can pink beans (rinsed and drained)
chili powder to taste (**or equivalent chili seasoning)
garlic powder to taste

Brown the beef/turkey. Drain the fat. Put everything else in the pot and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.

Voila! Dinner is done in no time flat! I usually try to get the no-salt-added tomatoes to help keep down the sodium. I usually keep all these supplies on hand for quick dinners when I don't feel like making anything big.

**The company I sell for, Tastefully Simple, brought back their Wahoo! Chili seasoning and I am really looking forward to trying that in my chili recipe next!

Vegetarian Chili (you would never know the difference)

INGREDIENTS:
~ Finely chopped onion, garlic, mushroom, carrots and any other veggie you like.
~Pinto beans (mashed) or a can of refried beans. (This adds more texture)
~Kidney beans.
~One package of veggie gounds (fake mince meat) you can find it in the fresh veggie section or at Whole Foods.
~One or two 28oz cans of crushed tomatoes (I like it tomato-ey)
~One Tbsp of Cumin, one Tbsp Oregano, and one - two Tbsp of Chili powder (I don't have a specified amount, so I'm just guessing -taste as you go)
~One package of frozen corn



METHOD:
~Saute onions, garlic, veggies just until onions and garlic are cooked.
~Throw them into a large pan on low.
~Add everything else.
~Leave it alone for a good hour and do a taste test.
(I like to leave it on the stove all afternoon until ready to eat or in the slow cooker).
~Add more seasoning if desired.
~Serve in bread bowls (you can order them from your local family run bakery).
~You're good to go...

Re: Looking for your favorite chili recipe

I feel I have to preface this by saying it tastes way better than it sounds...

Brown1-2lbs ground beef/chuck, add one choppped white onion. When onion is nearly transparent, drain fat. Add about 3-4oz (yes the whole bottle) of chili powder. Cook for about 10mins. Add a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies and a rinsed can of whatever bean you want. Add one 24oz bottle heinz ketchup and 24oz water. Stir and simmer on low for about an hour.


I know it sounds really weird but this recipe has come from my great uncle via my mom. Its really good!

I know this is an old thread but I ALWAYS add GREEN OLIVES and CORN to my Chili...
I live in south florida and there is a huge cuban influence. My best friend's mom is from Cuba and she taught me to make chili like this....
also GREEN OLIVES and CORN with BLACK BEANS and RICE! Now that is a cheap and tasty meal!
