Instructions
  1. In a large soup pot, heat olive oil over medium heat, add onions and garlic and cook until lightly browned.
  2. In a separate skillet cook lean ground beef until meat is browned. Drain the browned ground beef and add it to the soup pot. Add cumin, cayenne, salt and chili powder, stir and cook with the meat for just a minute or two.
  3. Add diced tomatoes, water and green chilies Simmer for one hour. Add kidney beans and simmer an additional 30 minutes.
  4. Made a day in advance and reheated is a great way to let the flavors develop and get ahead of the game.
  5. A 1 oz package of prepared chili powder equals 1/4 cup. I purchase these cello packs in the Mexican food section.
Recipe Notes

Chili – Andy’s Famous, Not Too Spicy Chili — 2 Comments

  1. Brenda – The recipe my brother used to ‘make’ this Chili did not include beans! He added them – most likely to make it go a bit further.
    From Andy:
    I usually make at least a double batch.
    Enjoy,
    Andy

    Andy’s Texas Chili (serves six)
    3 TBS Olive Oil – 2 Onions (minced)
    3 Cloves Garlic (crushed) –
    2 # Ground Beef
    One cup canned tomatoes
    ¼ tsp Cayenne
    1 tsp cumin (crushed)
    1 tsp Oregano
    ¼ cup Chili Powder … yes…seems like a lot but it works.
    2 cups water
    1 sm can chopped green Ortega chilies
    2 tsp Salt
    Canned kidney beans – optional, but I add them.

    I hope that helps!

  2. How would this be without the beans? I’m looking for a good chili without beans, and preferably without other “frills” like spaghetti or corn. Thanks for your help!
