Chili Recipes Without Beans

April 11, 2012
Chili Without BeansSo simple to make but it is so good.


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 2 lb. ground chuck
Seasoning Mix
  • 2 - 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • Advertisement

  • 3/4 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1.25 oz pack Winn Dixie brand chili seasoning mix
  • 1 - 1.31oz pack Winn Dixie Sloppy Joe seasoning mix


Seasoning Mix: In a bowl combine all of the seasoning mix. Stir well to make sure it is blended well.

Brown off 1/2 of the ground beef. Pour browned off beef into a 4 qt. pot. Brown off the other 1/2 of the ground beef. Pour browned off beef into pot.

Brown off 1/2 lb of the ground chuck. Pour browned off chuck into pot. Give pot a quick stir to begin blending the beef and chuck. Continue browning the ground chuck, 1/2 lb at a time. Give the pot a quick stir after each batch is added.

Stir the pot a good final stir. Add the seasoning mix. Stir pot to blend the seasoning mix into the meat. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes on medium heat

Note: Do NOT use any tomato paste!

Tips: Add some melted Velveeta cheese for a great chip dip!

I browned the meat off in small batches as it was easier for me to do so. You can brown all the meat at once if you have a large enough pan.

Heat oil in 4 quart heavy kettle. Add beef and stir frequently until meat changes color but not browned. Lower heat and add garlic. Combine chili powder, cumin and flour. Sprinkle over meat. Stir; then crumble oregano over meat.

Does anyone have a good no bean chili recipe that's spicy but not ridiculously spicy to where you can't eat it?

This is the chili I make every winter.
Ground chuck, browned, drained
1 pkg Brooks chili seasoning
1 large can Ro-tel tomatoes with chilies
(1 large can Brooks beans) leave out if not wanting beans
1 large can tomato juice
elbow macaroni
Brown ground chuck and drain. Cook macaroni in mixture of tomato juice and water; drain. Add everything else into pot and simmer all day. Very spicy but not over bearing. ENJOY!
