Taco Chili

Last night Charlotte from  http://fathairday.blogspot.com/ posted a recipe for taco soup which can be found at this link http://fathairday.blogspot.com/2010/10/theres-taco-in-my-soup.html.  It sounded really yummy and looked just as good but my family isn't really a fan of soups so I decided to adapt the recipe to make chili.  I have to say that it was delicious and I think this will be my standard chili recipe from here on out.  Here is my list of ingredients:

Taco Chili
3 lbs of hamburger
1 large onion
2 packages taco seasoning
2 tbls of cumin
2 cans pinto beans
2 cans black beans
2 cans kidney beans
2 cans rotel tomatoes with green chiles
1 small can tomato sauce

Lite sour cream
Mexican cheese
Tortilla chips

All I did to prepare the chili was brown the hamburger and onion then drain the grease.  Then dump everything else in and heat through.  I added extra cumin because I love the flavor of cumin but you can leave that out depending on your taste.  Charlotte also used a can of corn and Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix but I left those things out.  We topped our taco chili with lite sour cream, mexican cheese and tortilla chips.  Here is what it looked like before I scarved it down.


  1. That looks yummy! I made my own low-carb chili today (no beans). I added too much cayenne and hot sauce.... SPICY! Vee at http://veegettinghealthy.blogspot.com

  2. I've found that if you make your chili alittle to spicy you can add some sour cream to cool it down. I use to hate sour cream but now I love it especially on chili.

  3. Thank you Kenz it was yummy and leftovers will be even better tomorrow.

  4. That does look good, and you have it "dressed" so pretty! Glad you found your own version of my recipe. That's the fun part!

  5. Charlotte I have always loved taking recipes and changing them up and trying to create something alittle different. Its fun to be creative in the kitchen. I just had a bowl of chili for lunch today and it was even better the next day.
