Are you looking for a chili recipe that will have people saying, "Wow this is the best chili I ever ate!"? Then this is the recipe for you.

I love cooking chili and I love finding new and exciting recipes. Here is a delicious, quick, and easy chili recipe that everyone will enjoy.

The first time I saw made this chili I used a few different ingredients. Over time I worked at it so that now, when people try it, they say, "Wow! This is great chili!"

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup purple sweet onion, chopped fine
  • 1 cup green bell pepper, chopped fine
  • 2 cans kidney beans
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 8 cups beef broth
  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste

Instructions

Start off by browning the meat. While they are cooking, saute the onion and bell peppers. When the meat is browed, drain well and place in a large stock pot. Add the onions, peppers, and all other ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium. Allow to cook for at least two hours on medium heat, stirring often.

When you are ready to serve, place hot chili into a bowl where you have already placed a heaping tablespoon of grated cheddar cheese. Top each serving with a tablespoon of sour cream and some fresh chopped parsley. Serve with corn bread for an extra tasty treat.

Tip: I use McCormick chili powder, but you can use your favorite brand.

Let us know how the recipe turned out for you!

      Had to add sour cream to cut the spice, my family didn't like it that spicy. I'll adjust the cayenne next time, but this chili is fantastic!

      What do you mean by "purple sweet onion"? Is this a true purple or red onion or a sweet onion like a vidalia onion? Or something else? Thank you!

      Holy cayenne pepper!! I love spice, but I think I have to cut it down by half at least. It was however the best tasting chili I've ever had!

      Well. I wish I would have read these comments before I made it. The 8 cups wasto much liquid, and it's way to thin.....for chili. It's more of a hamburger soup consistency right now. Also, I added the tbsp of cayenne, and it is WAY to spicy. Even probably too hot for the fire hall, where this will be headed.

      Any way to Thicken it up? And how to cut the heat in the entire pot?

      I was curious about cooking tomato based dishes in iron skillet. Mine always has a funny taste. Someone said it reacts to the iron ?????? Did anyone else notice this??

      LOVED the recipe. The only things i do different is, double the tomato paste(12oz), half the beef broth(4 cups), no cayenne pepper. I love spicy food but the chili powder is more than enough for me. Also, depending on my mood, i like to put a little sour cream or ranch on top to cool it down a little. ALWAYS SERVED WITH CORN BREAD;)

      This chili was fantastic! I followed receipe to a T and it was perfectly spicy. If you don't like tingle on your tongue, you can cut your cayenne in half. Also, adding sour cream to individual bowls helps calm the spice a bit. My new fav chili!!! Thank you!!

      You can try it in a crock pot but I'm not sure you will ever get it to cook down like it needs to at the end. You could cook it in a crock pot and finish it in a regular pot. Or add a 6 oz. can of tomato paste about an hour before you serve it if you need to cook it in the crock pot.

      You can but leave the lid slightly off. Be sure to stir from the bottom often.

      This chili was so yummy. I just made it last night and we had it for lunch today and it's gone!! I ended up using about 6 cups of broth instead of 8, but it would still be great if you wanted to use 8. The taste is delicious even the day after! Highly recommend this recipe!

      I'm making this tonight and I'll let you know how it turns out. I didn't use as much broth as it stated as it seemed like it would be too much and I left out the cayenne all together...my family doesn't care for the spice like I do. It's my first time, so we shall see!

      It would really depend on the size of bowl or serving your going to be serving.

      Going to try this, this week! Texas has been getting chilly weather these last few weeks. Time to bust out a great chili. How many servings would you say this makes?

      Cooking the chili down also helps with the broth and reduces the broth. I cook my chili down until the broth is thick.

      I love the chili! I chose not to put any cayenne pepper in my recipe because I don't like spicy food. I agree with Samantha about too many beans and too much broth. The meat is great. I made some corn bread to go with it and it was great. I didn't drain any of the beans or dice tomatoes, so by cutting back on the broth might make it a little less soupy.

      Samantha everyone has their own tastes. I did cook this chili in West Texas when it won several prizes and they like their chili hot. I was asked to make it with beans for that particular chili cook off because many of the judges were from up north where beans are always added to chili. It would be great made with no beans. Thanks again for your comment. I also cook my chili down until it is thick. This is why most chili recipes won't work for the crock pot.

      This chili was awesome, but I wouldn't add so much cayenne pepper! If you do it's hot enough that even I can't hardly eat it & I love spicy foods! Also, doesn't need so much beef broth or beans! I done about 6c of broth (unless you want it soupy!) & 1 can of beans, but I'd still cut it down to about a half can of beans. This is really good & super easy to make!
