How to Make Chili for Everybody

Step-by-Step

  • 1Brown ground beef, set aside, saving small amt grease.
    Sautee garlic and onion in saved grease.
    In crock pot or large cooking pot, add all ingredients and mix well.
  • 2Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally at least two hours on stove top or 4 hours in crock pot.
    I leave mine in the crock pot on low all day.
    Add water or more coffee to desired consistency.
  • 3Host a chili party!
    Double, triple, quadruple the recipe, and host a party (can you say Football?)
    -Set out a variety of mix-ins and toppers buffet-style.
    Children especially enjoy adding their own "extras"

    Mix-ins and toppers for your chili:

    -Corn chips (like Fritos)
    -shredded cheeses
    -chopped onion
    -chopped green pepper
    -sliced jalapeno
    -oyster crackers
    -sour cream
    -a variety of hot sauces
    -sweet corn
    -cheese crackers (like Cheez-Its)
    Also try serving your chili over baked potato, rice, or noodles.
