My Award Winning Chili Recipe

Ok, I admit, it wasn’t a big award, but I did win!  My chili won “People’s Choice” Award at our homeschool co-op because it’s kid friendly.  It’s not spicy and there’s nothing unidentifiable, like vegetables- blech!


(the recipe was x4 to fill up this turkey roaster, served about 50)

This is my adaptation of a recipe my Dad used to make when I was little.

  • 1- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • minced garlic
  • 40.5 oz can of kidney beans
  • 29 oz can of tomato puree or sauce
  • chili powder
  • beef bouillon granules
  • salt and pepper

I very rarely measure and improvise with my ingredients, so get creative with what you have!

Brown ground meat with garlic, drain fat.  Add drained beans, tomatoes, about 2-3T chili powder and 1-2T beef bouillon.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Heat thoroughly and simmer to desired consistency.
