Everyone has a favorite chili recipe. Maybe it's a family recipe or something at your favorite restaurant in town, but we all have one. Over the years, chili has gotten a bit ... complicated. There are so many things to sneak in, from lentils and quinoa to exotic seasonings and beers. But sometimes you just want simple, easy, beloved chili. Perfect for game night, family night, all the nights!
This chili recipe from Gimme Some Oven is made with five simple ingredients and couldn't be easier to throw together.
When I was growing up, chili was a fridge-clearing food. All the small bits of vegetables we had hanging out were tossed in, along with a few cans of this or that for good measure. It was (and still is) an inexpensive way to feed a family. And since it freezes so well, you can make a lot of it in bulk and then stash some away for cold nights when you don't feel like cooking.
This recipe comes together in a flash with just five ingredients, which I'm guessing you already have in your pantry. Even if you don't feel like chili tonight, it's nice to know it's an option for when you're in a cooking rut. Just brown your beef or turkey and add in some onion, chili powder, and diced tomatoes and you're good to go. Make it on the stove or in your slow cooker — all roads here lead to deliciousness.
