I’m sure everyone thinks that their mother is the best cook in the world. Mine actually is.

I don’t cook a lot, but 99% of the things I do cook, are the exact same things that she cooks. If you’re interested in recipes at all, let me know. I could also share her amazing meatloaf and sloppy joe recipes.

We all know Cincinnati is notorious for chili, so I’m going to let you know right off the bat, this is not Cincinnati chili. I believe most chili experts would call this a “Texas Chili Recipe.” They may even call it an “Award Winning Chili Recipe.”

I’ve never actually entered it into any contests. I want to because I think it would win.

Pro Tip: Dicing onions and green bell peppers with your standard knife and cutting board is a pain, and is something they did in the early 1920’s. If you’d like to live in 2019 and make this process quicker and easier, use a Ninja Food Chopper.

Honestly, if I didn’t have one, I’d never make any food that required dicing.


  1. Lightly brown meat in a large skillet with onion, green (or any other color) pepper, and garlic. Do not over stir, and leave meat in small pieces.
  2. Drain grease.
  3. Add tomatoes, beans, tomato sauce, seasoning mix, Worcestershire sauce, and water.
  4. Cover with lid and let simmer for 30 minutes on low heat.
