  • Two cans of tomatoes (I get the chili seasoned kind from kroger), one can of black beans, and one can of chickpeas. mmmm, bake some cornbread for on the side, and some cheese and a little sour cream on the stop of the chili.

  • I make a version of chilli called Taco Soup.

    1 lb ground beef
    2 cans chilli beans
    1 small can diced jalapenos
    1 can Rotel
    1 packet taco seasoning
    1 packet ranch salad dressing
    1 C of salsa--I like mine hot
    diced garlic

    Brown the hamburger, saute the garlic. Dump in everything else and add 3-4 bean cans of water. Stir. Let simmer at least 20 min.

    Top with crumbled tortilla chips (i use the white corn ones), sour cream and cheese.

  • I use the McCormick Mild chili seasoning packet. First I cook some ground beef (2-3 pounds), drain it then put it in a big pot with 2 cans of stewed tomatoes, 2 cans of kidney beans, 2 cans of chili beans, water (as much as you'd like ) and the seasoning mix. Cook on med low until it is warm and thats it.

    I also add a bit crushed red pepper, salt, pepper and oregano.
    btw, don't drain the cans.

  • I don't really have a recipe but here is how I make it
    Ground beef
    chopped onions
    chopped celery
    4 cans of different beans... kidney,butter,pinto,black bean I rinse them before adding to the pot
    2 cans stewed tomatoes and 2 or 3 cans tomato sauce
    1 packet of chili seasoning mix
    bring to a boil and then turn heat down to a simmer and cook for an hour stirring every so often
    This feeds 8 and we top it off with sour cream and cheese shreds

  • If you don’t have a slowcooker, this can simmer on the stove; stir and add liquid as needed. In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients but the masa, shredded cheese, cilantro and salt. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. Five to 10 minutes before serving (depending on temperature of slow cooker) add masa and water mixture, cover and cook for about 15 minutes. Season, to taste, with salt and other spices.
    Just before serving, top each serving with shredded cheese and cilantro.

  • This makes a big pot but I do it the same way all the time. 2lbs hamburger or 1lb hamburger & 1lb sausage - brown & drain. Add as many beans as you want (I add 3 "family size" cans - they're 20-some ounces each I believe, Mrs Grimes is our favorite brand). Add a 46oz can of tomato juice (I use low sodium). Add a jar of salsa, or chopped fresh onions & peppers. Add some black pepper and chili powder. Cook on low in the crock pot for 8+ hours or simmer on the stove for 4-8 hours. Thick, rich, hearty, delicious, and you can change things up (less or more beans or meat, no salsa/veggies or more, etc).
