Popular Chili Recipes

The wonderful thing about chili recipes - that hearty, long-simmered stew typically made with tomatoes, beef and beans - is that no two pots are alike. You can simmer a Texas chili on the stovetop, or make your batch in a crockpot. There are endless ways to put your own spin on this western classic. Start with the basics and then have fun: Amp up the cumin. Add cubed steak or pork sausage. Try a bit of chipotle in adobo sauce to spice things up. For a veggie twist, combine different kinds of beans, black bean, pinto beans, and kidney beans all work well, throw in tofu crumbles and presto - you've got a killer vegetarian meal. Or take a left turn and whip up a batch of white chicken chili. After all, even though this is food fit for the range, even cowboys like some variety.

Quinoa Harvest Chili

For a vegetarian chili that's as satisfying as the beef variety, add protein-packed quinoa and black beans.

Pumpkin Chili

Unlike most pumpkin recipes, this stew calls for diced squash rather than canned. Feel free to use any protein source, such as extra beans, lentils, or ground chicken, in place of the beef and turkey.
