Classic Homemade Chil

Everyone needs a good Classic Homemade Chili recipe and this one is simply perfect! It’s made with ground beef (or ground turkey) and I’ve included tips for how to make chili on the stovetop or in the slow cooker.

For Crockpot Chili:

Cook the onion and brown the meat in a large skillet. Add the remaining ingredients to a large slow cooker and stir in the cooked meat and onions. Cook on low for 5-7 hours. 

For Instant Pot Chili:

Turn Instant Pot to Saute and brown the onion and meats. Discard the grease. Add everything else and cook on high pressure for 20-30 minutes to concentrate the flavors quicker than on the stovetop.

Why Do You Add Pureed Tomatoes Instead of Tomato Sauce?

We’ve made this recipe with pureed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and diced tomatoes and find the pureed tomatoes make the best chili. Use what you have, but if you have the option to use pureed tomatoes, do it. You won’t regret it. Since I rarely (if ever) have seen smaller 15-ounce cans of pureed tomatoes, I blend a can of diced tomatoes in my food processor or blender. (Source: www.inspiredtaste.net)

Is the Masa Required to Make Chili?

We love the gentle corn flavor that masa provides the chili, but if you don’t have any at home, you can leave it out or swap the tablespoon of masa for one or two small corn tortillas. (Source: www.inspiredtaste.net)

Do I Have to Use Ground Beef to Make Chili?

No, not at all! We took photos of beef chili, but this recipe works just as well with other ground meat. Chicken, turkey, pork, goat, and lamb are all fine. I prefer using ground meat with some fat, so when using leaner meats (like chicken or turkey), look for 10% to 20% fat. Chicken or turkey breast will work, but it will be dry. 

Do I Have to Add the Beans?

We love this chili with beans, but if you prefer your chili without beans, leave them out. You might want to increase the amount of ground meat a bit, though. I’d use 1 ½ to 2 pounds instead of the amount that’s called for in our recipe below. For a chili made without beans, try this red beef chili.
