The Best Chili
This is the best chili recipe loaded with two types of meat, beans and a twist (enchilada sauce)!
- 1lb ground beef
- 1 lb ground pork
- 1 large sweet onion, diced
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 (15 oz) can red kidney beans, drained
- 1 (15 oz) can chili beans, drained
- 1 (15 oz) can pinto beans, drained
- 1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
- 1 (15 oz can) tomato puree
- 1 (10 oz) can enchilada sauce
- 2 tbsp chili powder
- 2 tbsp cumin
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 bay leaves
- salt and pepper to taste
- toppings: cilantro, green onions, cheddar cheese, avocado
In a dutch oven brown the beef and pork until meat is cooked through (about 8-10 minutes). Drain off the fat.
Add the onions, peppers and garlic and saute until vegetables are soft (about 5 minutes). Season with salt and pepper.
Add the remaining ingredients bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 - 8 hours (the longer the better), stirring every 15 minutes or so!
Yummy! I love Wendy's chili and I always tell myself to look for a copycat recipe to make at home, and then I never do so. But it's starting to *slightly* feel like Fall here in Florida, and I so need to make this! Thanks for sharing 🙂

So glad you posted this! Looking for a good chili recipe!
Last year, my husband and I made the best chili recipe. I completely forgot about it until I saw yours, so thanks for reminding me about it 🙂 We don't eat much beef, because it makes me feel sick, but chili is such great comfort food during these colder months!

So I keep forgetting to tell you that I made this chili the night before Halloween for my little pumpkin carving ceremony. It was quite delicious! I didn't see that 2 alarm chili starter thing at HT so I googled it and found this recipe which is apparently the quantity of all the spices that is in the kit. http://www.food.com/recipe/2-alarm-chili-39280Thought it may be helpful for if you ever don't have a hit on hand. Thanks for the great recipe, my dear!!

Just had to tell you, I pinned this recipe when you posted it back in October, and I finally made it yesterday. OMG soooo good! It was my first time ever making chili and I'm so glad I used this recipe, it was delicious. Thanks for sharing it!
