Pressure Cooker Chili

There's nothing like a steamy hot bowl of chili on a cold snowy day. What's even better is having it ready within 35 minutes from start to finish.

Colorado Green Chili (Chile Verde)

Rating: 4.66 stars
My version of my mother's green chili. I like to serve it over oven-baked burritos or with beans and rice. If you can't find a chile roaster, look for frozen diced chiles at your supermarket. You can also freeze fresh roasted chiles for off-season use.

Terrific Turkey Chili

Rating: 4.78 stars
Using some fresh and some canned ingredients, this chili is a snap to throw together and will keep you craving it for days. Chunky zucchini, fresh green onion, sour cream, and - what the heck - shredded Cheddar cheese, are sure to make this your favorite chili recipe. If you like beans in your chili, garbanzos right out of the can are great in this.

Real Texas Chili

This chili contains no onions, beans or tomatoes. It is even better the next day. Season to your tastes as it may be too spicy for you. You can also add pinto beans, sour cream and lime juice, if desired.

Chile Chicken Chili

When I need a healthy, easy dinner for the family, I get out my slow cooker and make this chili. Chicken, cannellini beans, and salsa verde make this a delicious and somewhat spicy dish. Serve with shredded cheese and tortilla chips.

Hatch Chile Verde

Rating: 4.83 stars
Hubby and I are Hatch chile fanatics. We buy 50 pounds of roasted Hatch chiles when they are in season. We portion them out and freeze them so they are readily available. This chile verde does not call for tomatillos because I wanted the chiles to be the star of the recipe.

Chad's Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Rating: 4.61 stars
This easy soup is hearty, yet extremely tasty. This is really a form of chili, but uses some ingredients not found in regular chili. Sure to be a hit, you can adjust the spice as needed by using varying levels of jalapenos and RO*TEL® varieties. Top with shredded sharp Cheddar cheese and/or sour cream. Serve with tortilla chips. Leftovers can be frozen and enjoyed later.

Santa Fe Soup

Rating: 4.43 stars
This soup makes a quick meal that you can make as mild or as hot as you like depending on the stewed tomatoes with chilies that you use. Serve with hot corn bread or warmed flour tortillas.
