Min's Omg Chili!

Mindy Sena


I don't care for chili beans so I adapted my own recipe! I always get rave reviews and requests for the recipe. It's a crowd pleaser! My husband doesn't want me to post this recipe, but it's too good not to share! I like to do the prep ahead of time when I can.

Hot and delicious! With lots of heat and tons of flavor, this recipe is especially tasty served in a hearty bread bowl...with a big dollop of sour cream to cap it off. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Min's Omg Chili!


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. When heated, place bacon on cookie sheet for approximately 12 min. Let drain on paper towels. When cool, give a rough chop, set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, spray a large skillet with cooking oil. Saute celery, onion, green pepper, jalapeno peppers and garlic over medium heat until tender.
  3. Then add ground beef and sausage. Cook until no longer pink; drain.
  4. In a large pot or Crock Pot, add meat/veggie mixture. Add all remaining ingredients. Stir. Let simmer on low for 3 hours. Enjoy!
  5. Optional toppings: shredded sharp cheddar cheese, diced onion, sour cream, bacon, cilantro. I have served this in a bread bowl and let guests choose their toppings! Makes a nice presentation too!
