Tori's Beanless Chili

Rated as 4.64 out of 5 Stars

"This is a big pot of chili, great for when you have company; or you can freeze half and serve it again on a cold night when you don't feel like cooking. This is not too spicy for my young kids but flavorful enough to please the adults."

  1. Bring water to a boil in a large soup pot, reduce heat to low, and cook onions in the simmering water until translucent, 5 to 8 minutes. Add ground beef to onions; cook and stir until ground beef is browned and crumbly, about 10 more minutes. Sprinkle beef with salt and black pepper as it cooks. Drain excess grease.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir bell peppers in the hot oil until softened, about 5 minutes. Add peppers to meat mixture. Stir vegetable juice cocktail, diced tomatoes, tomato soup, chorizo sausage, green chiles, chili powder, and adobo seasoning into mixture until combined.
  3. Bring chili to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until thickened, about 30 minutes. Cover and continue simmering to blend flavors, about 20 minutes more.

This was a good recipe. I was a little apprehensive about adding the tomato soup and tomato juice but it worked out well.

I halved this recipe. Other reviews said it was not spicy enough so I added only the sauce from a small can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Spicy and delicious!

Added a scoop of cocoa, and used jarred fire roasted red bell peppers instead of fresh. Spectacular with corn, cheese, fritos, and jalapeño garnishes!

This had a great flavor and tasted even better the second day. Makes a good amount. I'm making this for the office chili cookoff contest!
