I started making this version of chili a little over a year ago and at the urging of a good friend, I entered it into our Chili Cook-Off Contest at work. There were 17 contestants and I won 3rd Place for MY chili! As my friend tells me "It's a good, all-around family recipe" because it's not hot or spicy, so kids will enjoy it too. It's also so quick and easy to make and best of all it is sooooo YUMMY!!!

How to Make Kim's Award Winning Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Follow preparation directions and simmer time on Bear Creek package (adding the 8 oz can of tomato sauce instead of tomato paste as the package calls for).
  2. While that is simmering, brown ground beef with diced onion and drain fat.
  3. Once both chili starter package and browned ground beef are ready combine together.
  4. Add all of the spices, the brown sugar, can of black beans and can of petite diced tomatoes. Stir well to incorporate everything into chili.
  5. Add pinch of cinnamon (you only need a teeny amount because it will over-power the chili), so be careful!
  6. Cook for an additional 10-15 minutes if desired, otherwise it's READY to eat!
