The Best Chili on Earth

This chili recipe truly is the Best Chili on Earth! It is packed with flavor, texture and color. It's a chili-contest-winner and tummy-pleaser. Make it for your next gathering, large or small, and you will get rave reviews!


Somebody told me recently that they had searched for a Chili recipe on my website and couldn't find one. Whoa...whaaaat?! I cannot believe I haven't shared this Chili recipe until now. It's a tragic oversight and I hope you will find it in your Chili-loving heart to forgive me. Dan and I have been making this recipe for years and I recently tweaked it, pushing it over the edge into the realm of Chili super-greatness. I love this recipe. And guess what? It's another snowy, cold day in which eating a heaping bowl of comfort is just what I need.

Serve warm with a bit of shredded cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream. And a delicious green salad!

If you have leftovers, and it's very possible that you will, please check out my Best Ever Chili Dogs recipe, my Chili Mac and Cheese Recipe and my Chili-Topped Baked Potatoes for great ways to re-purpose comfort food! And if you absolutely cannot find a chunk of time to make this delicious recipe, consider trying my Easy 5-Ingredient Chili for a much-condensed version.

Oh sweet Chili-eating goodness, I'm heading downstairs to heat up a bowl!

Here are some of my other comfort food options for your enjoyment: Best Ever Goulash, Twice-Baked Potatoes, Easy Baked Meatballs, Tater Tot Hotdish and Broccoli Cheese Soup (this is a copycat of Panera's famous recipe!).
