Stampede’s Comin’ Chili

This recipe is fast, easy, healthful and tasty.  I keep the ingredients on hand for unexpected company.  My family loves it.

1 pound ground meat (I like ground turkey, but beef works)

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 16 ounce carton fresh cut salsa (I like Rojos Garlic but your favorite will do)

2 16 ounce cans low sodium beans with liquid (1 can red, 1 can black is nice) 

Brown meat with chili powder, drain off fat.

Add salsa, beans, and a little water if needed.  For variety you can add some frozen corn.

Mix and simmer about 20 minutes.  Mash some of the beans with a fork or potato masher to thicken and flavor the liquid.

Serve and enjoy (you won’t believe how good this is).

  1. Elizabeth, this sounds so yummy! And it’d be so healthy for you. I like that it can be made with ground turkey. And it’s an easy recipe. I’m definitely going to try this.

  2. Thanks all for your comments and suggestions for things to add. Jalapenos…hmmm…

    Veronica, it’s two TEASPOONS, not two tablespoons of chili powder, so it really isn’t that hot.

  3. Ooooh this looks yummy – can’t wait to it out. And I’m one who would want to add the jalapenos, but since my hubby’s not fond of them I’ll just add them to my own bowl 🙂
