Classic, medium strength chili the whole family will enjoy. The slow-simmer method takes a little longer, but the results are worth the wait. We used pinto beans, but you can substitute red kidney or black beans.

  • Add 1 cup water, chopped tomatoes (with liquid), beef bouillon and Sazon to pot. Bring tomato mixture to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until mixture thickens and flavors come together, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour. Stir in beans. Cook until heated through, about 15 minutes more.

  • Divide chili among serving bowls. Garnish with cheese, sour cream and onions, if desired.

Cooking Tip from LA COCINA GOYA

Control the Spiciness in your Pot of Chili: A good rule of thumb when working with a spicy chile, like a jalapeno: The finer you dice the pepper, the more surface area is exposed, and in turn, the more of the spicy oils it releases. Here, we roughly chop the pepper which creates a medium spicy effect. For an even hotter end product, cut the pieces into a very fine dice. Care for a mild, background spice? Keep the chili whole, and fish it out at the end.

Simply Sensational Chili Haiku: "Love Goya products! Their recipes always win. Rock my socks' chili!" This is a no frills slurpin' good chili. I made it exactly as written except left out the jalapeno to appease to the more delicate taste buds of a toddler and I also tossed in a can of kidney beans. I also used fresh garlic (5 cloves) left it in the crock pot for 8 hours on low (smelled sinfully good) and served w/ green onion cilantro and sour cream. Hubbie says "Good but no Sazon Goya next time" as he spent the afternoon Googling MSG which is the #1 ingredient in those wee envelopes. I was just happy to make a Chili that didn't have a generic "Chili Flavor Packet" dumped into it. So /deep breath/ -- to sum up -- this is a simple and yes simply sensational chili that tastes like chili and isn't dominated by any one ingredient or spice. Just.Good.Chili. Read More

I used kidney beans. Will try pinto beans next time. I love chili and this one just wasn't a favorite. Felt like it was a little bland and the base too thin. Read More

This is exactly as advertised; great for the whole family. We live in Texas and not all of the GOYA products are availabe in most grocery stores. So we stock up on them. I omit the beans and this recipe turns out great! I have made this about 6 times and the recipe is very easy to double. This is a homerun for anyone! Read More

I'm not familiar with Goya products so we used what we had. We omitted the jalapeño and seasoning packet. My only complaint was that it was very greasy. Other than that it was quite tasty! Read More

Really tasty....a tad bit salty and I love salt. had to water it down a bit. And...Please before you put in your veggies make sure you meat is drained of the fat first.....I follow recipes by the T and it did not say this so....while my husband was loving it he said...I just can't finish b/c of the grease. DUH!!!! Ya live and learn. Kinda gross! But overall taste was really good. Tweaking is necessary though with the saltiness. Read More

This recipe is absolutely delicious and I am nothing but satisfied! My Sazon Goya did NOT have annatto in it and I had to use another brand granulated beef bouillon. Had no clue how much to use so I used 1/2 tsp and it came out just fine. I also left out the jalapeno. Highly recommend this recipe! Read More
