Week 4: Chili Con Carne

Category Chili
The Super Bowl is quickly approaching and homemade chili is the perfect meal to serve for the occasion. Packed with beans, ground beef, and tomatoes, this week's soup is easy to make with some basic pantry staples, but is hearty enough to satisfy everyone.

This is a quick, easy, and flexible chili. You can vary the type of ground meat used, the varieties and amount of beans used, and the level of spiciness. If you increase the number of cans of beans or the amount of ground meat used, add additional soup or canned tomatoes. Many of the ingredients are generally on my pantry shelf.


  • 1 can of Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • 1 can chili beans
  • 1 can light kidney beans or pinto beans
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder, adjust amount to suit your desired level of spiciness
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder OR 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • approximately one pound ground meat (I used ground turkey, but have used both ground chicken or beef in the past.)
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • Advertisement

  • grated cheese, optional


Add olive oil to Dutch oven or similar pot. This ingredient is particularly important when using turkey or chicken, due to the lower fat content of these meats.

Add ground meat and cook over medium heat until no longer pink, stirring to prevent sticking.

Add onion and continue cooking until the onion is translucent and soft, stirring often.

Add soup, tomatoes and green chilies, beans, chili powder, and garlic. I did add a bit of water, from rinsing out the cans. Stir to mix.

Simmer approximately 20 minutes until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Serve topped with shredded cheese if desired.

This is good served with a green salad and/or corn bread.

Note: The spiciness of the chili powder increases over time. So if made the night before keep this in mind.
