Eric’s 4-Bean Chili

This is my chili recipe. I have had several requests so here it is. You should know I rarely keep to it.


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 8oz can dice tomatoes
  • 1 15oz can of Black Beans
  • 1 15oz can of Red Beans
  • 1 15oz can of Pinto Beans
  • 1 15oz can of Kidney Beans
  • 1 4oz can of dice green chiles
  • 1 8oz can of tomato sauce
  • 4 fresh jalapenos
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic (about 1/2 a head)
  • 1 onion
  • 2 teaspoons of cumin powder
  • 3 tablespoons of chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons to 2 tablespoons of black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons to 2 tablespoons of Cayenne Red Chile Powder


  1. Brown the meat
  2. mix all cans (don’t drain) and meat
  3. chop and add the veggies
  4. simmer for 1-2 hours. I usually get impatient at an hour, but 2 hours is the original recipe I started from.

Add (Real men) or remove (wimps) spicy elements as necessary.
