My Sister In-law’s Quick and Easy Beef Chili Recipe

This beef chili recipe is full of flavor and is perfectly spiced. With an incredible texture, it’s a wonderfully hearty meal that will warm you up on those cold, winter nights.


The comfort food of many, beef chili is a common dish. It’s a simple, one-pot dish that doesn’t require too much work to make a delicious meal! Did I mention that it’s perfect to enjoy when it’s chilly outside? Maybe that’s why it’s called chili. (Actually, the Spanish originally called it “chile” and the English just borrowed it.)

No matter it’s name, we all know it and chances are, we’ve all probably made it before, too! The ingredients sometimes may vary, but the flavors always will please.

This chili recipe is actually my sister-in-law’s recipe. I love making it, and my kids always eat it up. It has The Original Picante Sauce, which adds that perfect kick that’s been missing from the other chili recipes that I’ve tried.

What do I need to make this beef chili?

Beef is high in protein and iron. It contains zinc, which helps to heal damaged tissue.

Onion helps to reduce levels of cholesterol in the body and gives you quercetin, helping to reduce inflammation.

Garlic boosts your immune system and helps to lower the risk of heart disease.

Red bell pepper gives your body vitamins A and C, boosting antioxidants that fight cell damage.

Carrots give your body beta-carotene, supporting eye health.

Tomatoes support bone health with the calcium and vitamin K they provide.

Red kidney beans are a great source of protein and fiber, supporting your digestive system.

The Original Picante Sauce adds a bold flavor to this chili. You can choose to add more or less depending on how spicy you’d like it!

Along with those ingredients, you will need olive oil, ground cumin, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper.
