5 Star Chili

Kimi Gaines


When I went to make my chili this past weekend, I did not have all my ingredients so I just started dumping what I had in the cupboard. My husband and son told me this was the best chili I have ever made. I have to say it received 5 stars for this girl. I had 2 bowls which I never do..we all ended up eating 3 bowls each.

How to Make 5 Star Chili


  1. In stock pot on high brown the ground beef and onion & peppers. Add seasonings to meat.
  2. Add all tomato products, then all beans. Add the taco seasoning. I taste as I go so I usually add more of the seasonings till I get it to my liking.
  3. Cook on medium for and hr, then turn down to low and cook till flavors are just right.
  4. You can add toppings such as cheese, sour cream, pour over a salad with nachos. We ate ours plain with bread.
