How to make chili fast?

In a large stock pot, brown your ground beef or ground turkey over medium high heat until no longer pink.

I love to use my Pampered chef mix n chop to break up the meat evenly. We normally do 1 pound of ground beef and one pound of ground turkey. I save money and no one can taste the difference.

Then add in the ½ onion and continue until they are soft.  Next stir in the remaining ingredients.

Then bring to a boil on medium high heat.

Next turn to low, add the lid and let simmer (stirring occasionally).

How long should you cook this fast chili recipe?

Allow the chili to simmer for 30 minutes up to an hour to let all the flavors combine.  I prefer for a minimum of 30 minutes for the flavors to marinate together.  It takes amazing and is ready in half an hour!

This quick and easy homemade chili recipe is very versatile and you can easily change it up to make it work for your family.

The easiest way to change up this recipe is to use your favorite type of beans instead of kidney beans.  I have made this recipe with pinto beans and black beans and both were delicious!

Use your favorite type of beans and it’ll bring that flavor to this chili recipe.

Also, if you like spicy foods, I recommend that you add 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to this chili recipe and it’ll add a little heat to this recipe.
