Homemade Chili is a staple food here in Minnesota because we get us some COLD winters. I love them! You know why? Here’s why: sweaters, hot chocolate, fall and winter essential oil diffuser recipes (because candles are toxic, but I still need those yummy scents!), and my family’s homemade chili recipe. #sweaterweather. I hope you enjoy it too!

Tip: Here in the midwest, we like our food pretty, NOT spicy! I happen to be an anomaly and I love, love, love heat in my food. So, I always add jalapenos to my chili after I put it in my bowl. For this reason, I did not include them in this recipe, but they make a great addition!

  • Put a lid on the stock pot and cook until the flavors have combined well and it’s nice and hot.
  • Add the basil, and more spices if needed.

  • Serve with grated raw cheese or sour cream.
  • This feeds a crowd! I typically freeze half of the batch so we can have some to eat later on.
  • Lasts up to one week in the fridge, and lasts for months in the freezer.
