Easy Mild Chili Recipe

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (15 ounce) can light red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15 ounce) can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar mild salsa
  • 1/4 cup chili seasoning mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, sausage, and onion in the hot skillet until beef and sausage are completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Stir stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, light red kidney beans, dark red kidney beans, mild salsa, chili seasoning mix, and garlic powder into the beef mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until the flavors meld, 90 minutes to 2 hours.
