How to Make Spicy Chili

by Adeze Wilford

Here's a quick and easy chili recipe you can make on a Sunday afternoon and have leftovers for the next few days. Enjoy!


  • 1 Pounds Ground beef
  • Small onion
  • Minced garlic
  • Chili powder
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Adobo
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Crushed tomatoes
  • Tomato paste
  • Red kidney beans
  • Pink kidney beans
  • Paprika
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Sauté diced onion and minced garlic in a saucepan with garlic and olive oil. When the onions are soft, add the ground beef.

    Step 2

    These are all the spices you need. This chili depends on your tastes. I made this pretty hot, but definitely adjust as needed. I also really believe in seasoning more than once.

    Step 3

    As you are browning the meat, add about a table spoon of each spice and just a pinch of salt. I don't really like adding too much salt to my food.

    Step 4

    Get your chili base ready. I drained the beans completely after opening. You can give them a rinse if you like, but it isn't super necessary.

    Step 5

    Add all the beans, crushed tomatoes and half the can of tomato paste.

    Step 6

    Give it a bit of a stir to make sure everything is incorporated.

    Step 7

    Now add the beef and onion mixture. You can drain the meat or use a slotted spoon so the grease is off.

    Step 8

    Now it's time to get crazy with the seasoning! I didn't put measurements in the ingredients because it's really a recipe you should tailor for your tastebuds :)

    Step 9

    A few good shakes of the paprika

    Step 10

    Add this to taste.

    Step 11

    I added quite a bit of chili powder because I wanted this extra spicy.

    Step 12

    Again this pepper to your taste

    Step 13

    Give this another good stir and then cover and set to low. Set the timer for 4-5 hours depending on the time you have.

    Step 14

    Serve with a dollop of sour cream. We also cooked up a batch of rice to put the chili over. You can also chop up some green onions and some shredded cheddar cheese. Bon Apetit!!
