Total time: 
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion, diced
  • ½ Medium Red Onion, diced
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 1 lb of Ground Beef
  • 1 lb of Ground Turkey
  • 14 oz of Crushed San Marzano Tomatoes
  • 14 oz of Black Beans
  • 14 oz of Red Kidney Beans
  • 14 oz of Cannellini White Beans
  • 2 cups of Fire Roasted Corn (try Trader Joes frozen!)
  • 8 oz of Original Baked Beans
  • Chili Spice Mixture (Chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, ground cumin, sea salt, and black pepper -- add about a ¼ tsp of each, and then taste to flavor -- if you like it spicier add more chili powder!)
  • Tabasco Sauce
  • Garnishes (pepper jack cheese, scallions, minced red onions, sour cream)
  1. In a 6-quart cast iron dutch oven, heat 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and drop in the yellow and red onions when the pan is warm.
  2. Sauté onions for 5 minutes, until they begin to soften. Add in garlic, combine for 1 minute.
  3. Push onion mixture to the edge of the pot and add in beef and turkey; cook until brown.
  4. When meat is browned, fold in chili spices and fully coat mixture. When fully coated add in crushed tomatoes and continue to combine.
  5. Pour all beans and corn into the pot and add a few dashes of Tabasco to taste, stir to combine.
  6. Simmer for 2-3 hours and enjoy with toppings -- Pepperjack cheese or cheddar and fresh scallions are a must!
