I know I have several chili recipes, but chili is one of those foods that can be made and remade hundreds of times and still have room for experimentation. Personally, I’m on a mission to find the chili recipe to end all chili recipes. This one turns up the heat with three different hot sauces, two of which are either regional or specialty, so I’ll provide links to those sauces. Honestly, if you’ve been fighting the sniffles, this chili is super filling and it’ll really clear your nose! Of all the chilis I’ve made so far, I think this one is my favorite.

If you live somewhere cold, save this recipe for some day in the dead of winter when you need something to warm you up. It’s sure to do the trick. Whether you’ve been out skiing, shoveling snow, skating, sledding — you name it, this chili is guaranteed to hit the spot and chase away the chill in your bones.

2 lbs Lean ground beef
1/2 Red onion, minced
1 Green pepper, diced
2 ribs Celery, diced
3 cloves Garlic, minced
12 oz Tomato paste
15 oz Tomato sauce (plain)
15.5 oz  Cannellini beans
31 oz (2 cans) Kidney beans
3 tbsp Frank’s Red Hot
1/4 cup Pico Pica
1 1/2 tbsp Hot Ones The Last Dab
2 tbsp Chili Powder
2 tbsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Black pepper
1 tbsp Basil, dried
1 tbsp Oregano, dried
2 tbsp Parsley flakes
Salt, to taste

In a pan, brown the meat and season it with chili powder, paprika, thyme, and black pepper. Drain, and set aside.

While the meat is browning, cut up your veggies and toss them into the crockpot, followed by the garlic, tomato sauce, tomato paste, basil, oregano, parsley, and salt. Add on the meat, followed by the beans, and then the hot sauces. Mix everything together, cover, and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Serve with more hot sauce, sour cream, and cheese!
