Tish's 3 Bean Chili

**This is NOT Cincinnati style chili - sorry to all of those of you are big fans. I hope you will like this one for a change of pace:)**

1 pound of ground beef
1 whole medium onion, chopped finely
salt, pepper,chili powder (I use dark chili powder), and garlic powder to taste. (I never measure the amounts, so I will give you my best estimate: 1 to 1 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 to 1 tsp black pepper, 3 TBSP. chili powder, and 1 to 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder).
1 can of pinto beans
1 can of red beans
1 can of navy beans
1 can of petite diced tomatoes
another 2-3 TBSP of chili powder
6 oz. of beer (you can use non-alcoholic or all water if you prefer)
6 oz. water
1 tbsp brown sugar

Assembly/Cooking/Freezing Directions:
Season beef with salt, pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder. Add onions and brown. Then drain of any excess liquid. In a crock pot or large stock pot, add all the beans, tomatoes, additional chili powder,beer, water and brown sugar. Then simmer till hot. Cool and pour into freezer bags, then freeze.

Serving Directions:
Thaw completely then reheat. Or you can put it in frozen into a crock pot and heat till hot.

***We serve ours with cornbread and salad**


  1. Ladies,
    I forgot to mention, if you want to thicken this chili up a little, crush up some tortilla chips and add to it at the end. It works great!

  2. We loved this just as it was, no thickening needed. Thanks for the great meal.

  3. This was good chili! Micah and I spiced ours up a bit and the kids added cheese and sour cream to theirs. Thanks!!
