This easy homemade chili recipe with kidney beans comes together in only 25 minutes!  It has been my go to family chili recipe for over 5 years!  It freezes well and is perfect for packing in a thermos on rainy days!


  • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 15 ounce can kidney beans
  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced and fire roasted tomatoes w/green chilis (see notes for modifications)
  • 2 cups chicken bone broth/stock
  • 3 Tablespoons gluten free Tamari
  • 1 Tablespoon Molasses
  • 1/2 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups organic frozen sweet corn (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt & pepper to taste (I use 2 Tablespoons salt)


  1. In a large stockpot, heat oil to medium heat and saute onion for 5 minutes.
  2. Add ground beef and ground turkey to stock pot. Saute meat and cook through. Be sure to break meat into small pieces. Approximately 5 minutes.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover for 13-15 minutes.
  4. Turn off heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.


  • If you prefer to have better control over the heat level in this chili, use fire roasted tomatoes without the green chilis and add chili powder seasoning a teaspoon at a time.
