Our family favorite chili that I keep coming back to again and again, over the years-- it's so simple, quick and easy to make, and totally yummy and satisfying! Especially good this time of year. From my mom. Wonderful sprinkled with grated cheddar cheese and chopped onions, with freshly baked warm cornbread on the side. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, brown the ground beef and onion, stirring to break up any clumps.
  2. Season with chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, cumin, and cayenne, and stir in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Bring quickly just to a boil, then immediately reduce heat to low and gently simmer with the pan partially covered, stirring occasionally (add a little water if it seems too thick), for about 45 minutes.
  4. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  5. Serve hot topped with grated cheddar cheese and chopped onions, with sides of warm cornbread. Enjoy!
