How to Make Pot Luck Chili


  1. In a skillet, cook ground beef with salt, pepper and onion over medium-high heat (Note: go easy on the salt since there is a lot of sodium in the beans).
  2. In a large pot, combine remaining ingredients, and add a bit more onion.
  3. When the meat is cooked through, add to the pot and allow mixture to come to a boil.
  4. When the pot begins to bubble, turn down to medium-low heat and cook for approximately 15 minutes.
  5. Originally I used fresh white onions in this recipe, but lately the onions I have bought have been so strong that I smelled like onions for days no matter how many times I washed my hands and brushed my teeth. Minced onion flakes are the perfect solution to this problem.
  6. This recipe freezes well, and it can also be made in the crock pot if you are planning to take it to a party.
