No Fail Chili

I’m so over summer and all the heat. I am ready for the cool, crisp Fall weather! We were fortunate to have two of our nephews over this weekend and decided to make our No Fail Chili. You can’t really screw it up and it makes a full pot! Enough chili for everyone!

 *Printable Recipe: NO FAIL CHILI 


  • 1 lb ground chuck

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 1/2 green pepper, diced

  • 2 cans dark red kidney beans

  • 2 cans light red kidney beans

  • 2 cans chili beans in chili sauce

  • 2 cans diced tomatoes

  • 2 cans water

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 tablespoon Tastefully Simple Wahoo Chili seasoning

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 5 shakes Frank’s Hot Sauce

  • Shredded cheddar (optional)

  • Sour cream (optional)


In large frying pan, brown ground chuck and diced onion till fully cooked. Drain grease. In a large stock pot, add ground chuck and onions. Drain and rinse the 2 cans of dark red kidney beans and the 2 cans of light red kidney beans. Add to stock pot. Add 2 cans of chili beans with chili sauce (do not drain). Fill each chili beans can with water and add to stock pot (you get the water you need and the remaining chili sauce in the can all at once). Add cans of diced tomatoes. Add chili powder, Tastefully Simple Wahoo Chili, salt and pepper to taste. If you do not have Wahoo Chili seasoning, add 1/2 teaspoon more of chili powder. Add diced green peppers. Add 5 shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce (more or less shakes depending on how hot you like your chili). Bring pot to a full rolling boil. Turn down heat and simmer for at least 30 minutes. Serve with shredded cheese and sour cream (optional).
