This is my mother's recipe that she has perfected over the years. She has won many a chili competitions with it. It is very good reheated for lunches and snacks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown meat (drain grease).
  2. Cut up vegetables.
  3. Put everything in a pot and boil on stove around 3 hours covered(crock pots also work, but I've found it doesn't turn out as good. It is always better heated up the next day).
  4. That's it.

I was spending a cold and rainy day in Atlanta with my 11 yr old daughter and she said "chili would be great tonight daddy". I am a single dad and the only chili I have ever made was straight out of the can, so I decided to do alittle search. I ended up with this recipe, we went to the store for the ingredients and now my daughter thinks that I make the "best" chili she has ever had ("it's the bomb") was her exact words, lol. Thank you for saving me and for such great chili.

Great chili! The best i've made. The 3 hour simmer is key, brings out the flavors. Thanks for posting =)

Tested this as my first recipe in my new pressure cooker. Nice and easy! I topped it with some chopped chives.
