Savory, spicy, smoky and incredibly delicious: This chili is all of the above. Chili is a traditional comfort food and is something that is loved by all. Though warm recipes may seem reserved for the winter months, this is a dish that’s great all year around. It’s the best side for Bubba’s Q Boneless Ribs and works as a perfect piece in a summer BBQ. The best news? This recipe doesn’t take long to come together and will be a hit with the entire family. Give it a try & let us know how you like it. Also, please let us know if you have a family chili recipe that we should try. Enjoy!

Coaching Points


Sauté onion in a large pot in 2 Tbsp. of oil. 


Add ground beef and minced garlic. Add in the chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, cumin, brown sugar, and red pepper flakes.


Mix and cook covered over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is totally cooked.


Add tomatoes, tomato paste, and beans.


Add any additional chili powder and/or red pepper flakes to taste.


Bring to a low boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes or more.


Let simmer for up to 2 hours or as long as you can wait! The longer it sits, the yummier it gets. It’s great the next day and the day after, too!


Serve with your choice of toppings on top. We like sour cream, shredded cheese, and some Bubbas Boneless Ribs.
