Best Meat Chili Recipe – When I’m in a hurry, chili is the closest I will get to opening a can or two or three and calling it dinner.
If the DH asks for chili, he means MEAT with a sprinkling of beans – you know, few enough to count them without stirring the pot.
The same applies to spaghetti sauce where, by special request, the sauce has to be thick enough to use as mortar on a stone wall.
In fact, I can technically forget the pasta as well or maybe save 3 strands to decorate the meat sauce.
He will top the chili with aged parmesan or with aged cheddar . And sour cream. And onions.
That’s fine as long as I can alter any set of ingredients and directions to make my best meat chili recipe!
I created this recipe for the big meat lovers in the family. It is the perfect one pot meal to serve to a crew of rabid football fans who will be glued to the HD screen for Super Bowl. All I need to add is a salad, some rolls and tortilla chips, brownies and ice cream.
Other than the screams and curses heard when a player incurs an unforced error, the house is relatively quiet. 🙂 Right!

What Goes Into My Best Meat Chili Recipe?
Today, I’m preparing the chili in my vintage Revere Ware® Dutch oven. When I say vintage, this pot is more than 45 years old.
Nothing says you can’t prepare the chili recipe in a slow cooker. As long as you brown the meats as the first step, on the stove top or in a crock pot with a browning feature, this recipe is ideal for keeping warm in a slow cooker.
For a complete meal, add a green salad.
Pass the sour cream, cheddar jack shredded cheese, slivers of shallots.
Ah…yes. The rolls? Pillsbury® Flaky Grands® biscuits lightly brushed with melted butter and sprinkled with the same Morton’s® sea salt with herbs.
A basket full of hot flaky biscuits is the perfect side for the best meat chili recipe!
