Yum Yum: Chilies - 2 Chili Recipes

Picture taken from
Not sure how to make chili plural but chilies seemed right.  I have always made a certain chili recipe and then I went to my friends house and loved her chili.  My chili is very tomato based and hers more roux based.  My father-in-law is the real test and he asks for my chili all the time when he comes and visits.  Since my husband does like the tomato, I added a little more to the roux one.  They are both great (I do think one is a little better for you than the other).  Here are the recipes:

My Chili
2lb ground turkey
1 chopped onion
1 can red kidney beans (rinsed)
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
1 can (10 oz) Ro-tel
1 can (4.5 oz) peeled and diced tomato
1 (11.5oz) spicy V8
1 can (4 oz) diced green chili
1 (2.5 oz) package chili seasoning (I use McCormick's)

Cook beef and onion.  Combine all ingredients and put in crock pot.  Cook until hot.

Friend's Chili (my alterations in red)
2 cans red kidney beans
2 cans tomato soup
1/2 lb. bacon (cut in small pieces)
2 chopped onions
4 oz Parmesan cheese
1 TBS garlic salt
1 large can chopped tomatoes
3 lb ground beef (turkey)
1 lb ekridge sauce (cut into bite size pieces (turkey sausage)
1 can tomato sauce
1 package William's Chili Sauce
Spicy V8 until a little soupy

Fry bacon, sausage and onion in large skillet.  Drain and add all ingredients into crock pot and heat.


  1. Both recipes are great looking. I'll have to make both, I guess!! Yum!! I'd love if you would drop by and link up to my Super Bowl Eats and Treats Party! You have to have chili at a Super Bowl party!
