Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook and stir ground beef and garlic in a large non-stick pot over medium-high heat until beef is no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Stir bell pepper, red onion, carrot, zucchini, and celery into beef mixture; cook and stir until vegetables soften, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir cumin, chili powder, oregano, coriander, and black pepper into beef mixture; cook for 1 minute. Stir tomatoes, corn, tomato soup, mushrooms, barbecue sauce, and taco seasoning into chili; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.

  • Stir black beans, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, and baked beans into chili; simmer until heated through, about 15 minutes. Remove chili from heat; stir in cilantro and lime juice.

Cook's Note:

If you can, make this chili one day before you want to serve it. It thickens as it sits overnight and tastes even better the next day.

Grey Cup Chili Haiku: "There's 'too much' in this. Yet somehow not enough taste. But my toddler LOVED." The bigger eaters added quite a bit of hot sauce cheese Fritos and salt to our bowls at the table to make up for somehow an inexplicable bland taste to this chili; however my veggiphobic toddler went bat crazy over her bowl which nudged this up a star rating. I just thought there were too many unnecessary additional ingredients. It was a good chili not outstanding but watching her chow down on her veggies made me tent my fingers and evil laugh. Read More
