You won't believe how incredibly flavorful this quick and easy chili tastes, perfect for lazy snow days!
  • 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
  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook ground meat until no longer pink.
  2. 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.

  3. 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.
Recipe Notes

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.
