Chilli is a big deal in my family ;) My parents were always competing to make the best, so after years of experimenting, I came up with this. I've NEVER written down a recipe before, so sorry if it seems amateur lol. I've been told that this is some of the best chili ever. I like mine with shredded cheese, sour cream and jiffy corn bread yumyum

How to Make Chilli


  • 1Put pinto beans in a large pot. Cover with water, about half the pot full. Add 1 sliced onion. Boil approx. 1 hour, until beans are soft. Add another onion half way through. Add water as needed, but only enough to keep beans from burning.
  • 2Place peppers on a foil lined cookie sheet. Place in oven on broil until skin starts to blacken. Flip peppers until evenly black.
  • 3After pinto beans are soft, add 1 more onion, seasoning mix, light and dark red kidney beans and the juice from canned tomatoes. Continue to cook approx 30 - 45 mins.
  • 4Brown hamburger, drain, add to chili along with another onion.
  • 5Peppers should be easy to peel now. Cut pepper open over the pot so the juice goes into chili. Peel off skin and discard the skin. Cut peppers into large chunks. Add peppers and whole tomatoes to chili. Cook about 10-15 mins. Let stand to thicken, then serve.
