Recipe for Chili

This recipe for chili is one of the closest ones to ‘original’ chili we have on this site.
It consists mainly of meat – has very little beans – and has quite a bit of sauce. I know beans in chili is considered a big no-no in some places but they really do add a lot to this wonderful, comforting meal!

This recipe for chili is spicy enough to leave a bite but not too much so as to make you sweat! Serve it with shredded Cheddar cheese, corn bread and sour cream on the side if you wish.

    Hi Belen!
    I use store bought chili powder which is a combination of (1 TBS) cumin, (1 tsp) cayenne, (2 tsp) garlic powder, (1 tsp) paprika and (1 tsp)oregano. If you can not find this kind of chili powder go ahead and mix these ingredients. Thanks for stopping by!
