Best Chili Recipes

Nothing is better for warming up on a cold day than a nice hot bowl of chili

This is the exact way I make my chili


use at least three bean types. I like pinto, red, and black beans.

Then clean the beans of any foreign matter.


Soak overnight in a light saltwater

3/4 cup pinto beans

1/4 cup black beans

1/4 – 1/2 cup red beans


Before you start the large crock pot or pressure cooker rinse the beans very well and inspect for rocks or bad beans a second time.


Cook your beans with a tad of bacon.


In a large pan cook the meat

1 lb hamburger

1/2 lb sausage

1 large cut bell pepper

Garlic, Onion, Salt just a bit for flavor while cooking.

After the meat has browned pour off all the oil.

Finally, we get to make the chili!

In a large pot add

1 onion

1 tablespoon Chili powder

1 tablespoon garlic

Oil to sauté

Cook until almost done then add

1 can Crushed tomatoes

Have tomato paste available if needed.

Add Your favorite chili seasonings or use William’s chili seasoning

Simmer for a till everything is nicely cooking then add your meat.

Simmer till cooking

Then add your beans stir till heated and serve.


Often I will add cilantro to the beans.

I also add a tiny bit of oregano often, sometimes I add Spanish paprika too.

Be careful with the chili peppers
