This is definitely a different and tasty chili. It's a takeoff of Zippy's Chili, which is renown in Hawaii. Over there it's being re-sold at Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown beef, onion and bacon – drain.
  2. In large pot combine beef mixture with rest of ingredients.
  3. Simmer at least 30 minutes.
  4. NOTE: I simmered for a couple hours…and of course it’s better the next day!

Hmm. I heard it was creamy peanut butter.

I've often heard that Mayo is the secret ingredient for Zippy's chili. :)

After living in Hawaii most of my life and now reside in Colorado, I had craving for Zippy's Chili. This recipe does not taste anything like the chili from Zippy's. It's missing the secret ingredient that makes it just like Zippy's.
