B's Quick Chili

B's Quick Chili

Here's another one of our go-to cold weather recipes. As my husband will tell you (vehemently), "real chili does not have beans in it!" However, it is acceptable to make a pot of pinto beans, like this recipe, and pour the chili over it.

For this recipe you will need:

  1 lb lean ground beef
  32 oz carton of chicken broth
  14 oz can tomato sauce
  1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
  8-10 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  3-4 heaping teaspoons New Mexican pure red chile powder (some chile powders have other stuff mixed in them)
  1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  1 teaspoon cumin
  1 teaspoon hot sauce (Crystal, Louisiana, etc.)
  1/4 teaspoon cajun seasoning (like Tony Chachere's)
  1 teaspoon salt
  5-6 "grinds" regular pepper

Brown hamburger in a Dutch oven. Before it's completely cooked through, add onion. Cook until hamburger is completely brown and onions are soft.

Add garlic and cook until fragrant.

Add 3/4 of the chicken broth, tomato sauce, and all seasoning, except cumin. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer.

Let simmer for 20 minutes. Add cumin. If chile is too thick, add remaining chicken broth as needed. Simmer for additional 15-20 minutes. Adjust seasoning and enjoy!

  3. haha your husband is funny. I'm pretty sure my boyfriend would be a practiced eater of his "real chili," since my boyf. love chili.....but only when it's sans beans (fine, he can make do with a little, but only that). Why do you taunt me with your delicious foods, woman? The only thing I want right now is chili. Fail!

    (but not really fail, because it looks awesome. Just fail that I'm not eating some right now!)

  10. That sounds delicious, I've never eaten chilli because I'm allergic to Kidney beans and it always seems to contain kidney beans. I definitely want to try this recipe!

  11. Chili without beans? I didn't know such a thing existed! I'm not sure how I feel about that... I like the beans. I think vegetarian chili needs the beans or it would have no texture, so I'm going to stick with them!

  16. My whole family would disagree with your hubby. I really like chili with some beans but that must be my love for beans since my family is Hispanic.
