Chili recipes can be found on a wide selection of websites, including Cooking Light, Betty Crocker, Martha Stewart, Allrecipes.com and Food.com. Depending on personal preferences, chili recipes can be made with beef, chicken, pork or turkey. Vegetarian recipes, slow cooker recipes and recipes without beans are also available.
The ingredients in the chili recipe from the Betty Crocker website include 1 cup chopped onion, two cloves of garlic, 1 pound of ground beef, diced tomatoes and red kidney beans. Spices include 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 tablespoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce. The first step involves cooking the ground beef, chopped onion and garlic in a saucepan. It's best to drain the fat from this mixture after cooking. The spices are then added to impart flavor to the chili.
The next step involves adding a 14.5-ounce can of diced tomatoes to the beef mixture, bringing it to a boil, reducing the heat and allowing it to simmer for one hour. Stirring the chili occasionally is recommended. Finally, a 15-ounce can of red kidney beans should be stirred into the chili. The chili should be brought to a boil and then simmered uncovered for about 20 minutes, or until the desired thickness is achieved.
