This old fashioned chili recipe is very simple and easy to make. I’ve been using this recipe for a very very long time; only because it’s like my basic go-to. I do make other variations of chili, like vegetarian chili, turkey chili, but this is just my basic recipe and I figured I’d share it with you.


  • 2 lbs Ground Beef
  • 1/4 cup Green Bell Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 stalks Celery
