It's Finally Fall - A Comfy Cozy Chili

This is a simple recipe that tastes so good. The trick is making sure you have enough time to really let this cook on the stovetop so all the yummy flavors develop. It’s a go-to for when family is in town - can easily be doubled - or for Sunday night meal prep!

2 lbs grass fed beef

14.5 oz can fire roasted tomatoes

1 large onion

6 oz can of tomato paste

3 tbsp of Chili Spice Mix (I use Chili 3000 from Penzey's)

3 cups water

Olive Oil (to brown onions)

Salt to taste

*Note, if you don't have a Chili spice mix, I LOVE the recipe from the Well Fed book, and you can use her spice recommendations.



1.  Brown onions with olive oil and salt in a large stock pot.

2.  Add beef and begin to brown.  As meat starts to brown, add Chili spices and can of tomato paste.

3.  Mix well!  Once meat is mostly browned, add the canned tomatoes and water.

4.  Simmer uncovered for at least 2 hours, ideally 3.  Stir occasionally.  Enjoy!
