Easy and Amazing Chili


No picture for ya on this one. But I do have an amazing recipe for you. I hope it will suffice 🙂
My super picky 2 year old ate an entire bowl of this and then asked for more! #WINNING!

1 lb ground beef (you can use ground turkey but it won’t be as flavorful)
a bit of salt to taste
1 white onion diced
1 red bell pepper diced
1 green bell pepper diced
1-2 (jalapenos if you feel like it, I don’t ever put it because the baby doesn’t like spicy food)
1-52 oz can ranch style beans
1-15 oz can black beans drained
1-15 oz can stewed tomatoes
1-15 oz can tomato sauce
26 oz water
2-tbsp minced garlic
2-tbsp chili powder
1-tbsp ground cumin
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp paprika
1-tbsp sugar
2-tbsp Bragg apple cider vinegar
ground cayenne pepper to heat to your preference

in a large pot
cook your ground beef then salt to taste
add in the veggies, cook until soft
add in the spices
then add in the canned items and water
I add 26oz of water because I love for there to be plenty of broth. If you want a thicker chili you can add less water

Bring to a boil then simmer for 1 hour.


Enjoy with fritos, crackers, tortilla chips, diced avocados, diced tomatoes, diced red onion, in macaroni and cheese, with hot dogs, whatever!
P.S. the chili always tastes better the next day!
