Prep Time: 5 min      Cook Time: 4 hrs


  • 2 lbs of ground Beef
  • 1 can of Kidney Beans
  • 1 can of Tomato Paste
  • 1 “Texas Chili” Seasoning Packet
  • Water


  1. Brown the meat. Throw the beef in the pan and stir it occasionally over a medium heat until the meat is brown.
  2. Following the directions on the seasoning packet: mix in the tomato paste, kidney beans, water, and seasoning, and let simmer on low heat for about 3.5 hours.





Tips & Tricks:

  • Chili is served best with some warm Cornbread. You can whip up a batch pretty easy if you buy a box of “Jiffy Mix
  • Chili is a great left-over, bring it into work with you and microwave the cornbread and chili separately until warm.
  • If you’d like a little more of a kick (spicy) in your chili, swap out regular tomato paste for a mexican pepper/tomato paste.
