My husbands chili recipe, created after several tries and various iterations of other recipes, we found this one to have a nice flavor and just the right amount of heat. We recommend using the Paul P. chili powders but of course you can use your own combinations of what you have on hand. A blend of various chili flavors in not overwhelming amounts seems to be the key to a spicy yet palatable chili.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop the meats, we use a food processor for a coarse chop. Better meats yield better chili.
  2. Brown the meats with a bit of salt and pepper.
  3. Chop and Dice all vegetables in a food processor.
  4. Combine all above ingredients into large sauce pan or slow cooker. I use a large Crockpot.
  5. Slow cook covered 10-12 Hours on Low Heat.
  6. My Teaspoons and Tablespoons are usually heaping.
