A staple in my house. I usually make it with ground turkey. The amount of chili powder you use will depend on how hot you like your chili. I like it sort of mild/medium, so I use 2 tablespoons.

How to Make Natasha's Chili Con Carne

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown onions. (Will take 20 - 30 minutes, but I always get impatient and just cook until very very soft and just starting to brown). Add ground meat and continue browning until all red is gone.
  2. Add remaining ingredients. Mix, cover with lid ajar, and simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally so mixture doesn't burn. Will be very thick until you stir it.
  3. This chili is even better the next day. I serve it Chili Mac style - over spaghetti with Chedder cheese on top. Add diced onions and sour cream if you want to top it off. Enjoy.
