easy 10 minute dinner, homemade chili recipe
You know my passion for effortless entertaining, and currently, a quick and easy meal that everyone enjoys. Whether it be a tailgate, game day party or an excuse to have dinner over, chili is one of those things that is so easy to make, doesn’t require a side dish and nearly everyone enjoys. That makes this a win in my book.

Fortunately for me, my mom saw the value in a quick dinner, so this comes easy to me.

I personally was never a big chili fan until a few years ago. Even now, I personally can do without the beans, but the right mix of seasoning, beef, creme fraiche {or sour cream} and chips make it the perfect winter dinner, in just 10 minutes.

If you like your chili a little more soup like, just add a 12 ounce bottle of beer. The hoppier, the better, like an IPA. I also highly recommending taking a minute or two to freshly shred your cheddar cheese. It makes all the difference in the world because shredded cheddar tends to be dry and doesn’t melt as well. This makes it rich and creamy!

10 Minute Chili

Cook Time 10 mins Total Time 0:10
Serves 4     adjust servings


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 tsp red pepper
  • 1 Tbsp dried onion
  • 1 can Mexican chili beans
  • water or beer
  • 4 oz cheddar cheese
  • sour cream, crema or creme fraiche
  • chips


  1. In a skillet, cook ground beef over medium high heat, adding red pepper and dried onion.
  2. When nearly cooked, add chili beans. Continue to stir and reduce to medium low heat. We tend to like ours thicker, but you can add ¼ c water or up to a bottle of hoppy beer if you wish.
  3. While the meat is cooking, shred cheddar {it's so much better than pre-shredded, I promise.}
  4. Top with sour cream, cheese and chips.
