The Best Classic Chili – This traditional chili recipe is just like mom used to make with ground beef, beans, and a simple homemade blend of chili seasonings.
After years of adjustments I have found a recipe for all to enjoy. Previous ones were either too hot or too mild, this one even was to the liking of my finance who hates chili.Easy homemade chili. Goes great with cornbread or over corn chips for a chili pie! I like to use spicy pinto beans.
This classic chili is perfect for a weeknight meal because it can be made in minutes. The only thing to chop is an onion.
What is better in the winter than a good, easy recipe for Homemade Chili? From super bowl parties to chili cook-offs… chili is woven into the fabric of American winter culture. And for good reason; it’s AWESOME and there are so many variations.
And if you’ve been searching for a good “standard” type chili that everyone will like, look no further! This is it. And it’s EASY! My mom cut this recipe out of a newspaper in the early 90’s, and it’s been our ‘family chili’ recipe ever since. There might be a few ingredients you are not used to seeing in chili, like cinnamon and chocolate chips (a Cincinnati chili influence), but trust me – they work!
By now, you probably know I like to keep it simple with my recipes. Same goes for my homemade chili. Chili in itself is not a complicated dish to physically make, but it is complex when it comes to flavors.
