Chili Very Mild

Chili Very Mild

On cold days, my favorite dish to make is chilli.   Here is the recipe I use as my “go to” because it is easy and delicious.


1 lb ground turkey or ground beef
1 large chopped onion
1 green or red pepper, chopped
3 cans of beans (2 cans kidney and 1 can black)
1 28 oz can crushed or diced tomatoes
2 “tomato” cans of water (using the 28 oz can)
1 heaping tsp. of Better than Beef Bullion  (secret ingredient)
1 bay leaf
Pinch of sugar
1/3 cup of corn meal (optional)


1.  Brown veggies until they wilt and put in a bowl

2.  Brown ground beef

3.  Add veggies and the rest of the ingredients.  Bring to a boil.

4.  Simmer for at least a couple of hours.

I actually use a crock pot now and just put everything in it.  However, I still brown the beef and saute the veggies.  The cornmeal is a great quick thickening agent.

Many of my family members love chili, but can’t take the spice. Here is a recipe that I have adapted so that it is flavorful and doesn’t use chili powder
