191008 - Recipe Tuesday - Veggie Filled Chili


Once it starts to get chilly out, that’s the perfect time to start making chili! Rice, veggies, cornbread, or cinnamon rolls make a perfect pairing with some meaty chili! I’ve played around a lot with different recipes and this one is just about the easiest ones I’ve found!

2 lb. ground beef/chicken
Minced Garlic
Chili mix (chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, cayenne, garlic)
Tomato puree or sauce (if I have extra marinara, I’ll use that too!)
Can of diced tomatoes


  1. Brown ground beef and just before done, add minced garlic then drain fat and remove from skillet.

  2. Add oil, onions, celery, carrots, and seasonings to the skillet and cook until translucent over medium-high heat, about 5-7 minutes. Once onions are golden and veggies are midway cooked, add autumn veggies and cook for 2 minutes, making sure you stir everything well.

  3. Add cooked beef, tomato puree/sauce, and tomatoes into the pot and stir well. Bring everything to a boil, stirring frequently, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

  4. If you can’t do without beans, you can now toss in a can of those and cook for about 3-5 minutes more! Sprinkle on your favorite chili toppers (bacon, cheese, parsley, brown sugar) and ENJOY!
