I don’t know about where you live in the world – but where I am, it’s pretty chilly outside. Get it? Pretty chili outside? *haha*. Here I show you step by step how I make my Chili that my family loves! This chili is perfect for the coldest afternoons with your family and friends or for a cold movie night- in. This soup is super easy to put together and even more tasty. Not to mention – most soups are exceptionally delicious by the 2nd day! I also have showed you how to make this chili on my channel. Check it out below. Give this recipe a try and let me know how it went for you.
1 medium sized yellow onion
1 medium sized green pepper (I chose a green one but red or yellow is great too)
2 cloves of fresh garlic
2-3 green onion bulb stalks (for garnish at the end)
oyster crackers (or Doritos chips)
shredded cheddar cheese
1 pack of ground beef ( I prefer 20 percent fat and 80 percent lean beef)
1 pack of smoked sausage
1/4 cup of Chili seasoning (a blend of salt, pepper, chili, cumin, cayenne, garlic and onion powder)
Red pepper flakes
To speed of the process, I used canned beans. Dry beans work awesome too but for the sake of time I went the canned route.
1 can of White chili beans
1 can of black beans (I chose the black beans in chili sauce for extra spice)
1 can of dark red kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 tbsp of tomato paste
1 can of tomatoe sauce
1 large can of whole peeled tomaotoes
12 oz of cold water
In a dutch oven – brown your ground beef until all of the meat is fully cooked. Drain off excess fat/grease. Next add in your chopped vegetables and saute until all vegetables have become translucent in color. Add in your chopped garlic last. Add all of your seasonings. Then add in your sliced smoked sausage. Let cook for about 10 minutes. Be sure to add in all of your canned tomato items. Let simmer on a low to medium heat. Make sure that you frequently stir the pot every 10-15 minutes to prevent scorching and sticking. Add in your beans and cold water to help loosen the base. Let simmer on a low heat for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool, garnish and eat!
