Chili is one of our all time favs. It is filling and the ultimate comfort food on a cold day. I love this recipe because it is not only DELICIOUS, but it might be the quickest homemade chili you will ever make. To make it a little more "special" I add a little shredded cheese, greek yogurt and (nitrate free) bacon. Bacon makes everything taste better!

Servings: 6
Author: Amy Ramsey
  • 2 pounds ground beef buffalo (can add ground turkey)
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 10-ounce can rotel-style tomatoes and chilies
  • 1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 2 15-ounce cans beans of any kind, rinsed and drained
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons Mineral Salt
  • 1 ½ tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Garlic powder to taste
  1. Brown the meat with the onion in a large skillet over high heat, about 5 minutes. If the meat is fatty, brown alone first, drain off the fat, then brown the onions with the cooked meat.
  2. Add all other remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Check the seasonings and serve.
