Carolyn’s Texas Chili

This chili recipe comes from a high school friend of my mother's of 55 years. It makes enough to feed 10 to 12 people easily. It is a wonderful chili recipe and I use it often.

Makes 20 servings


  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 3 lbs ground beef
  • 3 cups chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 8 cups beef broth
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 18 oz tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ cup chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons oregano
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 cans of lite kidney beans


    1. In a large soup pot, add oil.
    2. Brown ground beef and remove any excess fat from pot.
    3. Add onions, garlic and cook until slightly soft.
    4. Add rest of ingredients and simmer 1½ to 2 hours stirring often to prevent the chili from settling to the bottom of the pot and scorching.
