Traditional Chili

I love chili!  There are some great variations of chili out there that are pretty delicious.  My church growing up used to have a chili feed and people would bring in such creative batches of chili.  I love all the creativity and variety.  BUT, every now and then I want some traditional chili.  The what-I-think-of-when-I-think-chili chili.  So this is it!  This is my go-to traditional chili recipe.  I hope you love it and I also hope you pass on all your favorite chili recipes to me!


Traditional Chili


1 pound ground beef

2 yellow onions, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

2 garlic cloves (or more), minced

1, 16-oz can light kidney beans

1, 28-oz box chopped tomatoes

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper


  • Brown ground beef in skillet and then put in crockpot.
