 We have never made chili. My mom makes it and always give us plenty

We will sometimes add one can/jar of chili with no beans as a starter, sorta. Then we add 2 or 3 types of beans, corn, tomatoes, spices, onions, peppers. It's like a garden chili :)

I make ours.  Usually it's a fall and winter food for us.

My chili-

2 lbs. ground beef

1 large yellow onion

2 tsp. chopped garlic (I used jarred)

1 large can tomato juice (I like Campbell's)

2 cans diced tomatoes

1 large can kidney beans (rinse and drain)

1 can black beans (rinse and drain)

Chili powder to taste

Salt 'n Pepper to taste

Shredded cheddar for topping, or sliced jalapeno...sometimes a dollop of Daisy sour cream.


I brown the beef with chopped onion and add the garlic while I'm also heating, in a large pot, the remaining ingredients. (except cheese, jalapenos, or sour cream, of course!)  After draining the beef mixture, I add it to the tomato mixture and bring to a boil, then simmer a couple hours on low.

I like chili but haven't made it in ages.

1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained of fat

1 lb. beef stew chunks, cut small (bite-size)

1 can red kidney beans

1 can pinto beans

1 large can stewed or cooked tomatoes

1 can condensed tomato soup

1/4 cup water

1 small onion, diced

1 large green pepper, diced

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (hot)

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Combine all ingredients in crockpot; mix well. Cover and cook chili on low about 8 hours, or until the beef chunks are very tender and fall apart easily. Add more water if you like your chili thinner.

Serve chili recipe with hot cornbread or oyster crackers...delicious! Enjoy!

I love chili!  I make my own in my crock pot, using beans (usually 2-3 kinds; whichever ones I feel like using at the time), canned tomatoes, beef, onions, peppers, and my own chili seasoning mix.  I like rather spicy chili, and none of the chili seasoning mixes available at the store were to my liking.  So, I experimented and found a blend that works for me.
