Denise Chili


Step 1: 

  • 2 lbs ground beef (fried and drained  on paper towels of all grease) set aside

Step 2: in 1 tbsp butter & 1 tbsp olive oil fry till softened on med heat approx 5 minutes

  • 1 onion chopped (I use sweet)
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 2 med jalapeño chopped with seeds
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 tp sea salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Add back in the fried hamburger

Step 3:

  • 1 28oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 28oz can of diced tomatos
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 27 oz can chili beans
  • 1 27 oz dark kidney beans
  • 1/2 cup water

Mix well

Step 3: Seasoning - in a side bowl blend

  • 2 tbsp cumin
  • 2 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tbsp Dried parsley

 Mix well and add to the chili mixture.


Follow all the above steps.  I like a dutch oven, but this also works great in a slow cooker even in a insta-pot.

Approx flavor time is 2 hours on low.  I love making the day before and letting the flavors all absorb before serving,  Add some fresh shredded cheese, with a side of  cornbread and butter. Enjoy d
