I’ve won awards with this chili (you know, work chili cook-off style, not real ones!) and it’s always a winner. Easy and super flavorful. My mom originally gave me a similar recipe, but I like really chunky chili and massive amounts of flavor; and being that my mom is Norwegian, obviously, I had to spice it up a bit!


1 16 oz can chili beans, undrained

1 16 oz kidney beans, drained

1 16 oz can corn, drained

1.5-2 lbs of hamburger (if you sub ground turkey or chicken add 1.5 t fennel when browning the meat to keep the flavor up)

1 cup white chopped onion

1 cup green pepper

4 large cloves garlic

3 16 oz cans tomatoes

1/4 – 1/3 cup chili powder

1.5 t salt

2 t cinnamon

3 bay leaves

1/3 cup Franks hot sauce

Red pepper flakes

Instructions: brown the meat, then add the veggies and garlic to cook them. Add the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer for a while.
