Hearty Chili Recipe

One of my favorite recipes for cooler weather is a hearty chili.
I usually make a really big pot, so we can eat some and then freeze some for later.
This recipe is always a hit with my family, and I love how versatile it is - you can serve it over corn chips, hot dogs, rice, etc. 
Once you see how simple it is, I'm sure you'll love it, too!

Hearty Chili Recipe
1 Large (15 ounce) Can Diced Tomatoes
1 8 Ounce Can Tomato Sauce
1 15 Ounce Can of Beans (your choice - I use butter beans)
2lbs Browned Ground Beef(you could sub turkey or venison for a lighter version)
2 Tablespoons Chili Powder
2 Tablespoons Salt
2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder
1/2 Diced White Onion
1 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
1.  Combine all Ingredients In Stew Pot.
2.  Let simmer for several hours on low heat.
3.  Serve with desired base (corn chips, rice, etc.), and top with shredded cheese.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does.
Have a happy week!

  1. What is the approximate # of servings for this recipe Heather?

    1. For this recipe, I would say 8-10.... maybe more (depending on portion size). I always double and freeze for later. It is yummy on a cold night!

  2. Yum! We love to make chili and eat it while we watch football. I make a HUGE pot and our friends and family come and go throughout the day. Everyone enjoys helping themselves to chili and watching the game!

    1. Oooh! Yes! We do, too! Chili is a perfect game day dish.... :)
