Recipe: Comfort Chili

January 4, 2018

Chili + lots of cheese + cornbread! 😋 


I try to keep things on hand to always whip this up for nights I don't really feel like cooking 😵


So simple and so yum! Cornbread came from classic Jiff box (+ can creamed corn), nothing fancy there! 😊


Chili Recipe

Serves 5+ | Prep time 25 min | Cook time 45 min



2 tbsp Olive Oil

2 cans Kidney beans (in juice)

2 packages ground meat (I used 1/2 ground chicken and have ground beef)

1 large yellow onion, diced 

1/2 green pepper, diced

1 Tbsp Cumin

2-3 Tbsp Chili Powder

1 Tsp Cayenne (🔥 )

1 cup Tomato sauce, or enough to cover all the contents

Salt and pepper to taste

Shredded cheddar cheese (for topping)- and I gotta tell ya, when you buy the brick of cheddar cheese and grate it yourself, it's better (and melts better) than the pre-shredded kind!


Feel free to add other add ins (I always like to switch it up) - you can try different peppers, carrots, black beans, or other meats like sausage. Try topping with different cheeses, green scallions, or sour cream. 


Serving suggestion: Serve with cornbread or crackers.



1.) In a large pot on medium-high heat, sautee onion and green pepper in olive oil for about 8 minutes, until soft. 

2.) Add in ground meat and cook until no longer pink. Add seasonings. Add tomato sauce.

3.) Bring contents to a boil and then simmer on low (covered) for about 40-50 mins. 

4.) Serve hot with toppings of choice.
