One Pot Winter Chili Recipe

This One Pot Winter Chili Recipe is an absolute favorite in our house. I especially love making it on Sundays and then having leftovers for the week. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does! What makes this chili so delicious is the mix of flavors. My favorite is the celery and carrot. These were always ingredients that my mom had put in her chili growing up and I just love the combination. Having chili for me is nostalgic – it brings back memories of those cold winter days that we’d have chili for dinner. That’s why I love making this recipe in the winter. The best part is you’ll have plenty for leftovers to make a second dish or freeze for another night!

One Pot Chili Recipe

This one pot winter chili recipe is seriously such a comfort food. My favorite part about it are the different beans and veggies. And cooking everything in one pot makes the clean-up much easier! I like to open all the cans and prep the carrots and celery while the meat is cooking to save time. It’s a really easy meal to prep and freezes well. We also like to do taco night with the leftovers. Just use the chili as your taco meat and serve with taco shells, cheese, tomatoes and lettuce!

If you like different veggies in your chili, no worries – you can swap out the carrots and celery for more peppers, corn or more tomatoes. You can also change up the beans and we’ve even made it with white kidney beans or lentils.
