This is a super Easy Chili Recipe that I have been making for years. It comes together in just a few minutes and you can simmer it on your stove top or cook it for a few hours in your slow cooker.
Easy Chili Recipe
- 1 lb ground chuck
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 2 (15.5 oz) cans chili beans
- 1 (15.5 oz) can dark red kidney beans, drained
- 1 (10 oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies
- 1-2 tablespoons chili powder/seasoning (or more if you like it really spicy!)
Brown the ground chuck along with the onions; drain well. Add all ingredients to a Dutch oven and mix well. Simmer for 30 minutes. You can also add everything to your slow cooker (after browning the meat and onions) and simmer on low for 4 to 5 hours.
We like to add some shredded cheddar cheese or sour cream (or both!) to our individual bowls. Fresh hot cornbread is always a yummy side – corn chips are great along with the chili, too.
This recipe freezes well, so go ahead and double (or triple 😊 ) it and freeze some for an even easier weeknight meal!
