quick beef chili recipe
To me a good hearty chili has 2 things. Meat and beans. That was until I went to a chili cook off and discovered beanless chili. Obviously I was sheltered and forgot about chili dogs. We love slow cooker chili, but sometimes you need a quick chili recipe to make dinner fast.
What sides go with chili? We serve it with crackers and cornbread. I love it when the cornbread is still warm and you add a little butter and dunk it in the chili.
the perfect sweet cast iron corn bread
You can also sprinkle some cheese on top and you have a delicious twist.
Chili is perfect to serve in the Fall, when watching football. But honestly any time is a great time to have chili. Here’s what you need to do to make this quick chili recipe.
2 pounds ground beef
1 quart tomato juice 1 (29-ounce)
2 15 oz can red kidney beans, drained
1 medium onion, chopped (or 1 tablespoon dried minced onion)
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
1/4 cup chili powder (or to your taste preference)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
In a large skillet pan, brown the ground beef and drain off excess fat.
Place the beef into a 6 quart pot.
Add the onions and peppers.
Add the remaining ingredients.
Cover the pot and let the chili simmer on low for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Stir every 15-20 minutes.

Do you know of any vegetarian chili recipes?
You could make this recipe vegetarian, just don’t add the meat and add carrots, corn and any of your favorite veggies.
That looks yummy. Now I feel quite hungry! Im going to have to bake an egg or something.
My grandfather used to make the most wonderfully chili! Thanks for sharing your own recipe!
Get that recipe from him, so you can pass it down to your family. It’s always good to share family recipes.
