Ready to clean out your fridge? I have the chili recipe you need. I have included lots of suggestions below for what you can add to spice up your chili but the great part about this recipe is just about anything can go in it.
2 lbs ground beef/pork/chicken/turkey
2 cups chopped onions (any type except green onions)
2 cans chopped tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce (I used homemade but that’s not mandatory)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp chili pepper
1 squirt hot sauce
2 tsp salt
Veggies you can add: mushrooms, celery, sweet peppers, hot peppers, zucchini, corn, leftover salsa.
Proteins you can add: bacon, sausage, leftover steak or shredded chicken breast, beans.
Random items you can add: tomato paste, ketchup, BBQ sauce, chipolte peppers, pickled peppers, sun-dried tomatoes.
Toppings: sour cream, crushed corn or tortilla chips, chives, red pepper flakes.
This recipe is perfect for freezing. Add cooled chili to a Ziploc bag and seal, removing air. Label and store in the freezer for 3 – 6 months. Enjoy!
