This is the simplest and best chili recipe I have come up with -- I simmered down several recipes into this best-tasting and most approachable version.

How To Make real deal red chili

  • 1
    In a large Dutch oven, brown ground beef with chili powder and cumin. Add onion and garlic and saute for a few minutes, until onion is translucent. Add salsa and bouillon, and one cup of broth and bring to a boil. Simmer 20 minutes
  • 2
    Add remaining broth, tomato sauce,and beans and simmer, covered, for one hour (at this point you may put contents in a slow cooker and simmer for a long time).
  • 3
    Add salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. Simmer for 30 to 40 minutes uncovered or until reaching desired consistency.
  • 4
    Add Sriracha hot sauce to taste, or allow people to season their own bowls. I often serve this with cilantro sour cream, or my Sriracha lime cream (leaving out the hot sauce in the chili). I also add frozen corn sometimes, and minced fresh cilantro. Easy and delicious. Feeds a lot of folks, too. I get lower fat good quality beef and it makes a difference.
