Simple Chili Recipe
If you’re looking for a quick chili recipe. This is it. We can make this one pot meal in about 30 minutes. Of course, the longer you allow the chili to simmer, the better the flavor.
What ingredients go into chili?
There’s a lot of talk about what actually makes a good chili recipe. We have to have beans in our chili. There’s just no way around it! So, our recipe for quick chili includes canned beans. You can, of course, cook your own beans beforehand if you have the time or prefer dried beans, but then the chili wouldn’t be ready quickly! We also use tomatoes, ground beef, garlic, and seasonings!
Here’s what you’ll need for this chili recipe.
2.25 lbs. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 can diced tomatoes
2 cans diced tomatoes with chilis
4 cans kidney beans
2 TBSP. chili powder
1 TBSP. cumin
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. onion powder
2 TBSP. chicken bullion (This is the best chicken bullion.)
1/4 cup water if needed
Shredded cheese, green onions, sour cream, etc. for toppings
How Do You Make Good Homemade Chili?
Let me show you how simple it is to make a good homemade chili on your stovetop!
First, brown the ground beef in a pot.
Add chopped onion and minced garlic and allow to cook with ground beef.
Add tomatoes and beans after draining and rinsing the beans.
Add all of the chili seasonings. Yes, the bullion is my secret ingredient. You can use beef bullion if you prefer.
Stir to combine all the ingredients. Add a little water if you want you chili a bit thinner and more soupy. Allow to simmer.
Have shredded cheese, chopped green onions, and possibly sour cream available for toppings. We also like eating our chili with saltine crackers.
So delicious and PEFECT for a fall evening!
My kids gobble this chili up! We love using mild diced tomatoes and chilis so the kids can handle it, but use whichever variety of heat you prefer.
