Traditional Chili With Ground Beef warms and fills you up. It’s a quick easy comfort food meal.
Do you like Traditional Chili with Ground Beef? It’s the time of year for chili. But then, I think chili is right for just about any time of year, don’t you? I’m updating my chili recipes. There are SO many ways to make chili. This one is my favorite. Standard, traditional chili with beef. This recipe calls for both beef and turkey, but you can make it with either all beef or all turkey, if you’d like.
Chili is a simple, one-pot meal that only takes 30 minutes to make. When my mom made Chili, she made a watery version, probably to stretch the meal to feed the horde. I like mine thick and packed with beans. However, unless I use black beans instead of kidney beans, I can only eat a little bit of it.
Black Beans vs. Kidney Beans
Are you able to eat all kinds of beans? If not, which kinds are you able to eat? It’s interesting to me that I only tolerate black beans and when I look at Eat Right for Your Blood Type, it says I should stick to black beans!
Of course, in this recipe you can substitute any kind of beans that suit your digestion. Try our Black Bean Chili or our Coconut Chili (yum!) for a little different take on the meal. Do you know the ingredient that changes the flavor and makes it Cincinnati Chili? Check out that recipe to find out.
What You Need
For this recipe, you need knives, a cutting board, a good soup pot or Dutch oven, measuring cups and spoons, a large spoon and a colander. But what you really want is a whole set of great pots, some fabulous dinnerware and beverage glasses, right?
