I love my mom’s chili. I make it regularly and it freezes really well. I use the recipe as a guide and sometimes play with it.

-2 lbs ground beef

-2 cups onion (chopped)

-2 cups green pepper (chopped)

-4 cans chopped tomatoes

-32 oz tomato sauce

-1-2 tsp chili powder

-1 dash cayenne powder

-64 oz pinto beans

-1 can tomatoes with hot peppers

Brown ground beef with onions and peppers. Combine everything in a pot. Cook till heated through. Serve over rice, with cheese, corn bread, or sour cream. 

I use red, orange, and yellow bell peppers. I have added fresh tomatoes that I chopped up or purred in the blender. More spice and less. Kidney instead of pinto. Or black beans. Or a mixture. It’s always good.

I have made it in my instant pot close to dinner time. I pressure it for 7ish minutes and it tastes like I cooked it all day.

Tonight everyone ate it! G even asked for seconds and then thirds! So you know it was good.


might need a bigger pot
