Kicked Up Chili

This is my go-to chili recipe. While it does require a few more ingredients than my Quick Chili, I feel that it is well worth the investment. While the original recipe was developed as a condiment for hotdogs, I personally love to eat this as a sandwich, chili dog, and chili cheese nachos. Once you have homemade chili, you will never go back to the canned stuff! The leftovers, if there are any, freeze well for a quick weeknight dinner.

1/2 Medium Yellow Onion, chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 Pound 80/20 Ground Chuck
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1/2 Tablespoon Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
2 Tablespoons Ketchup
1 Tablespoon Yellow Mustard
1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce
1/2 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon Chili Powder

1. Combine onions, garlic, and ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Using a spatula, break the meat apart as it cooks. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Allow the meat to brown and onions to soften, about 5 minutes.
2. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine.
3. Cover and cook on medium-low for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

NOTE: The longer you allow the chili to simmer, the better! If you have the time, turn it to low and let it cook for 1 hour. This will cause the chili to basically melt!!!!
