5 Ingredient Chili

When I nabbed this chili recipe over three years ago off of a friend’s calendar, I had no idea it would become a personal favorite. I was a vegetarian at the time so I used Morning Star beef crumbles, which worked really well. I can still remember the first time I made this for my family I was surprised at how good it was, considering its simplicity. My dad makes an amazing venison chili with onion and chunks of bell pepper so I was certain this wouldn’t compare. While I still hold that his chili is unmatchable, this recipe is simple and delicious.

Five Ingredient Chili
Serves: 4
  • 1 lb ground beef or one package Morning Star beef crumbles
  • 1 can mild chili beans (16 oz), with liquid
  • 1 can kidney beans (16 oz), drained and rinsed
  • 16oz jar of salsa (medium)
  • 1.25oz packet chili seasoning
  • (optional) cheese & sour cream
  1. Brown ground beef and pour off grease. If using Morning Star "meat," skip this step.
  2. Add ground beef, chili beans, kidney beans, salsa, chili seasoning, and ½ cup water in a large pot.
  3. On medium-high heat bring to a boil. Turn to low and simmer covered for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Serve with cheese & sour cream
