  • 1 lb. lean ground meat (I used extra lean ground turkey)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes, undrained (stewed tomatoes works too)
  • 1 15 oz. can black or kidney beans, undrained (any of your favorite bean variety will work)
  • 1 4 oz. can chopped green chilies
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder, more if you prefer
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin or to taste
  • season with preferred amount of garlic salt and pepper


  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook ground meat until no longer pink.
  • Meanwhile, add onion and bell pepper to a large pot and sauté until soft. Then, combine all other ingredients with onion and bell pepper, bring to a boil, decrease heat and simmer for about 30 minutes. Add the meat in with all of the other ingredients when it is cooked.
  • Chili is ready to go and delicious after 30 minutes, but the leftover chili (after the seasonings have had a chance to meld) is amazing.


Feel free to add in a cup of so of broth, if you like a thinner chili. You can also use any type of ground meat you prefer.
