Recipe File: Ken’s Chili

Ken's Fabulous Chili

Ken’s Fabulous Chili

My husband makes the best chili.  I know I am biased, but his fans don’t lie.  Everyone that has ever tried his chili likes it and then wants the recipe.

Ken’s Chili

  • 2 packets of Lawry’s Chili Seasoning
  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 2 cans of dark red kidney beans
  • 1 8oz can of tomato sauce
  • 1 8oz can of El Pato tomato sauce
  • 2 cups water

Follow the packet directions to make the chili.  The El Pato sauce adds a kick to the chili and it is the secret ingredient.  You can serve the chili over multi-grain pasta with grated cheese, chopped onion and sour cream.  My husband loves to eat it with tortilla chips.  The chili also freezes well.  Don’t substitute the chili seasoning with another brand.  It won’t be the same and you will be disappointed.  If you want to switch the meat, you can try bison, buffalo or ground beef.

My husband’s biggest fan is one of his colleagues.  He brings this dish to every potluck at work and his colleague gorges himself on the chili because he loves it that much.  A few years ago he started to make the dish just for him for his birthday.  Well, it is that time of year again.  Happy Birthday!

  1. I just bought a slow cooker and I’m dying to do chilli… this sounds like a great recipe… (and looks even more delicious)! Too bad I don’t think we can find el Pato tomato sauce here in the UK…

    • You need to find a spiced tomato sauce. The El Pato is from a Mexican vendor so anything that has a Mexican or Spanish flavoring would work. Good luck and I hope you will be able to try it!
