  • 1 pound(s) meat of choice or meatless product browned if nec.
  • 2 can(s) diced tomatoes with liquid
  • 1 can(s) tomato paste
  • 1 package(s) Chili seasoning (or make your own!)

  • 2 clove(s) fresh minced garlic more if you like! we do!
  • 1/2 whole(s) onion diced


  1. In a skillet brown meat or chicken
  2. - *if using precooked meat or "meatless" product you can skip the browning process*

  3. Meanwhile:
  4. In a larger soup pot combine remaining ingredients, set on Medium High heat, cover

  5. -*stir regularly to keep beans from burning on the bottom!*

  6. Add browned meat to base stir well and re-cover

  7. -*Depending on time allowance you can cook this on higher temperatures for 20 minutes or turn down to simmer and cook for longer!*

  8. It will absorb much of the liquid overnight so make sure you add a little water when you reheat the next day!

  9. Add corn chips, crackers, cheese, sour cream or whatever toppings you like!
