Winter Chili Recipe

Winter Chili - Recipe

Serves: 6-8

This chili recipe is spicy and cooks enough for at least 6 people. The slow cooking allows all the spices to mix and would pair perfectly with corn bread.


  • 4 onions, well chopped
  • 2 green peppers, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. jalapeno, finely chopped
  • 2-1/2 lb. ground beef
  • 4 tbsp. cumin
  • 4 tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans tomato sauce
  • 2 cups water
  • 28 oz. can Rotel
  • 3 (15 oz.) cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed


Add the chopped onions, peppers, and ground beef to a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook until the meat has browned then drain off the excess oil. Mix in the tomato sauce, Rotel, water, and spices. Cook until boiling and add beans. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover the pot/Dutch oven and cook for 2-1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
