This video is about the Welcome Box they send you when you sign up. Enjoy!

Our Favorite Chili Recipe

Our Favorite Chili Recipe

We love chili at the Hoover home! When we first got married my chili was more of a soup consistency. I wanted more of a Wendy’s chili taste and texture, so I tried A LOT of different recipes. We have this chili once every two weeks! We really enjoy it and hope you do too!

What you’ll need:

1 can of kidney beans

1 can of black beans

1 can of kidney beans in chili sauce

1 can of chili without beans

1 can of fire roasted diced tomatoes

1 pound of browned ground turkey (or beef)

1 small cooked onion

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. italian seasoning

1 tsp. chili powder

Optional: 1 can of corn

Toppings: shredded cheese, sour cream, cilantro, green onion, Fritos, saltine crackers, etc.

Instructions:

Spray crockpot with non-stick spray. Combine all the ingredients and stir together. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4.

I know it seems crazy to put canned chili in a chili recipe, but it makes ALL the difference! And the fire roasted tomatoes give it such a hearty flavor!

Cooking for a crowd? Triple this recipe to feed 20-30 people.

If you like a lighter consistency you can use chicken stock to thin the chili.

Don’t forget our favorite side dish … cornbread!! There is nothing quite like warm cornbread with butter on top! My kids LOVE it.
