Yummmmm. Chili.

It's Wednesday, and time for another recipe for my recipe group: What Can I Eat that's Gluten Free? hosted by Linda at the Gluten-Free Homemaker.

This week's recipe? Chili!


Olive oil
2 onions
1 head of garlic, chopped
4 bell peppers, various colors
1 large carrot, sliced

2 small cans green chilis
1 can dark kidney beans, drained
1 can light kidney beans, drained
1 can pinto beans, drained
2 cans tomato sauce
2 cans diced tomatoes

2T chili powder
1/2t cayenne
1t garlic powder
1T oregano
2T basil
1T cumin

1 to 1 1/2 lb ground beef

A note: This is NOT a spicy chili. If you want spicy, then add several different kinds of peppers of whatever heat level you like. You can also increase the amount of cayenne pepper as well.


1. In a large kettle, heat olive oil over medium heat.

2. When warmed, add onion and garlic. Saute until onions begin to clear.

3. Add diced peppers and sliced carrot. Stir occasionally.

4. Meanwhile, in a separate skillet, brown meat while veggies cook. Drain, if necessary.

5. Add seasoning to veggies and stir well.

6. Add canned items to veggies.

7. Add meat.

8. Stir well.

9. Simmer on low for an hour or two, at least, or transfer to crockpot.

Note: Chili is best if allowed to cook for at least 6-7 hours (overnight). Always best the second day.


(PS - Hats off to my mom-in-law for the original recipe. Which of course I lost. Three times. And then just made up again from memory. Thanks!)

Looks really yummy. I think I'd be scared to leave my stove on overngiht. Or do you use a crock pot? I don't own a crock pot, never even used one.

I like all the pictures of all the ingredients ... but I'm such a plain jane with my food, I'm so not a chili fan

This recipe looks great - I'll have to try it. It's fairly similar to my current one.

I have to say that I made chili this past week and couldn't find the chili powder, which had fallen behind the spice shelf. In a rush I used smoked chipotle chile instead. My son and I couldn't hardly eat it without downing TONS of water and the hubby wolfed it down, saying it was the best chili he'd ever had! LOL! It's amazing how different people are.

Thanks for the post. I'm enjoying reading your blog.

Mikki, you forgot to add your link this week! It's not too late though. I noticed your post as I was going through my reader.

Chili is a great fall recipe. I like all your pictures. I'll give this recipe a try soon.
