FAQs

Make Ahead and Storage:

What is Taco Chili?

Taco Chili is a hearty soup filled with beef and beans, just like regular chili recipes, but it also has green chiles, taco sauce, and taco seasoning for a little kick

Can I make Taco Chili in Advance?

Yes. Taco Chili only gets better the next day. Feel free to make this a day in advance, store right in the pot with a lid, and heat over the stove until warmed through before serving

Storing: Store soup covered and in the refrigerator for 3-4 days

Reheating: Reheat chili on the stovetop in a pot with the lid on. Use medium heat to warm the chili up. Stir occasionally so the bottom does not burn. Heat until warmed through

What Kind of Toppings Should I use for Taco Chili?

  • sliced green onions
  • tortilla strips – find these near salad toppings in the produce section of your grocery store
  • corn chips
  • sour cream
  • shredded cheese – cheddar or Mexican blend
  • diced tomatoes
  • sliced black olives
  • jalapeno slices
  • green chiles

Tips and Tricks:

  • I like to use ground sirloin beef because it has a very low-fat content and is really flavorful. I never have to drain the beef from ground sirloin
  • If you can’t find ground sirloin, then find something with a low-fat content
  • you can double this recipe for a bigger pot of taco chili

Ingredients:

  • ground beef – buy lean ground beef with very little fat. My favorite is sirloin beef
  • sweet onion – like a Vidalia onion
  • canned diced tomatoes
  • canned crushed tomatoes
  • black beans – these will need to be rinsed
  • sweet corn – drained
  • taco sauce
  • green chiles – I like to use mild green chiles, but if you really like a kick to your chili, then you can definitely substitute a hotter version
  • taco seasoning -I wouldn’t get reduced sodium taco seasoning. Original taco seasoning is best in this recipe
