I'm sure everyone already has a recipe for chili, and favorite recipe at that. So I'm sure this post isn't very exciting. Why would you want to try my chili if you already have one you like? Well, I wanted to share my chili with you anyway because I like it and the weather is cold so it seems like good recipe to share. This is pretty much my mom's recipe, with only a few minor changes. It's easy to make and I like how it has kind of sweet flavor to it.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic diced
  • 1 can chili beans
  • 1 can pinto beans 
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/4  cup honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons chili powder
  • Chipotle Tabasco to taste (optional)

In bottom of a large pot brown ground beef with onions and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Drain grease. Add in bell pepper, canned beans and tomatoes, water, honey, chili powder and if desired tabasco sauce. Bring to a boil and simmer 15- 20 minutes. Serve with shredded cheese or sour cream.

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
