I have several very good chili recipes, none of which I ever seem to have all the ingredients on hand for! This recipe came about one night through a mish mash of all the recipes, and now it's the only one I'll make! Turned out perfect, and SO easy!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large pot, combine the ground beef, ground turkey, and onion. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until meat is cooked through, about 10 minutes.

  • Stir in the kidney beans, baked beans, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Season with chili powder, garlic, garlic powder, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for at least 1 hour, stirring occasionally. The longer the better. After the first half-hour has passed, taste, and adjust seasonings to suit your preference.

This was one of the best homemade chilli recipes my husband and I have ever eaten. It was very easy to make! The only thing I added was some cayenne pepper sauce to make hotter the way my husband likes it! Read More

This to me did not taste like chili. If I were to make again I would omit the baked beans because they literally melted completely into the chili and became the predominant flavor. No matter what I tried I could not tame the baked bean flavor and it tasted a little odd with all of the other ingredients. Not bad in my husband's words "different" Read More

This chili was absolutely delicious! I followed the recepie to a "T" - and only added spices to suit my taste. I will admit the baked beans threw me off - but once I tasted the final product - WOW! Thanks for this great recipe! Read More

Made this chili with 2 lbs of ground turkey; added 2 green peppers and a can of jalapenos; used light and dark kidney beans as well as black beans. Added lots of chili powder and green tabasco to make it even spicier; omitted mushrooms. Guests loved it and after making in a large pot placed in crockpot for 4 hrs on high. Best chili in a long time. Served with homemade spanish rice and great cornbreads. Read More

This was absolutely wonderful! We celebrated with it for July 4th...delicious and easy to prepare. I used ground chuck and more turkey and mushrooms than called for and amended the spices to paprika instead of chili powder. We are still enjoying the leftovers. Thank you! Read More
