This week’s Sunday Supper event is a Chili Cook-off! So all the bloggers taking part to this event will post chili recipes! Not only… being a “real cook-off” we also have public voting for the best chili recipe! The lucky winner will receive a Food and Wine Conference ticket PLUS a gift card. The voting will be done on the Sunday Supper Movement website and hosted by Heather, SSM Online Community Magazine Editor-in-Chief. How fun is that??
I was so happy when I found out about the theme as I LOVE Chili! You see, in Italy it is considered “ethnic/Mexican” food, and it is very uncommon. I ate it for the first time in Paris in a Tex-Mex restaurant in my teen age years and I fell in love with the flavours. A couple of years later I found a recipe in an old magazine and twisted it to my liking… and that’s the recipe I will share with you today. Before we move on to the recipe though, I should clarify that “my Chili” includes beans. In fact, I did not know this, but some people believe that “real chili” should be made with only beef and chili, and that too, with stew-like pieces of beef. Nowadays there are so many variations of chili that sound awesome, but as I still don’t have any on my blog, I decided to stick with my old trustworthy recipe. This dish is very easy and also relatively quick to make, especially if you use canned beans. I hadn’t made it in such a long time that I had almost forgotten how much I liked it! It is such a hearty and comforting dish! I love to eat it with avocado, tomato, coriander leaves and a dollop of sour cream to cut through the spices! YUM!
A huge thank you to Heather of GirliChef for being a wonderful host for this week’s event!

I’m one that likes beans in chili. Only time I have chili without beans is when I use it as a hot dog topping. It is interesting to see who is on which side of the beans in chili debate.
We always put beans in our chili, too! So glad to see chili is enjoyed around the world, Manu!!
Easy is always good!! Your chili looks delish!!
Renee - Kudos Kitchen says
Your photos are incredible! I think I can count every bean in the bowl and see every vein in that cilantro (coriander) leaf. Superb!
Becca from It's Yummi! says
Your chili looks amazing, Manu! I’m a big bean lover when it comes to chili, so your recipe looks right up my alley
Alice // Hip Foodie Mom says
I love that you tried chili for the first time in Paris in a Tex-Mex restaurant of all places!!! and yes, TEXAS chili believes that it’s only beef and chili seasoning, no beans. I love that a lot of different cities and states do it differently.
Family Foodie says
This recipe is fabulous and so are your colorful photos. LOVE!
Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says
I have to tell you that I LOVE all of your pictures! They are beautiful! Your chili looks just amazing!!!
Courtney @ Neighborfood says
I love chili with a dollop of sour cream too! This looks like a wonderful classic recipe!
I’m a bean free chili eater but yours still sounds good and I love your little red pots!
Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious says
Easy is my middle name, so this is just my style.
Gotta stick to your most trustworthy recipes, they won’t steer ya wrong!
I always make this kind of chili. It is my son’s favorite dish. I just add one or two peppers, diced, and some thyme. With fresh bread from bakery.
Same thing in Germany ~ Chili is Ethnic Mexican food and I think the first time eating Chili for me was in the United States. It is so easy delicious and always a hit in my family 🙂
Your version sounds fantastic and the pictures are just mouthwatering.
Sometimes simple is best and I think this recipe showcases that!
I also love having beans as a part of my chili! Yours looks picture perfect indeed!
I love beans in chili and usually prefer it with ground beef too. You did a great job Manu! And I love your colorful presentation!
Amanda @ MarocMama says
A lot of times I find it really difficult to find the ingredients I need to make ethnic foods here in Morocco, but what I love about chili is that no matter where I am in the world the ingredients exist. Gorgeous food and great recipe!
Betsy @ Desserts Required says
I love all the options you offer for this delicious chili. M-M-M!
Lizzy (Good Things) says
Ah, Manuela, one of my absolute favourites! Thank you for sharing xo
Sarah | Curious Cuisiniere says
I love how colorful your pictures are! This chili looks fantastic!
When I first moved to the UK I thought it was funny that everyone thought chili was Mexican food. We now joke that the only reason it is packaged as Mexican food in the UK is because they were convinced no one would try it if they said it was American. 😉
Julie @ Texan New Yorker says
There’s a Tex-Mex restaurant in Paris?? No way! Your chili looks wonderful. 🙂
Love a good old chili on a wintery night and yours looks absolutely delicious! ! Love the colorful pics too 🙂
Jane's Adventures in Dinner says
Beautiful ingredient made simply-no better food.
Martin D Redmond says
Great looking recipe Manu! Every had chili with Negroamoro from Salice Salento? I bet they work well together!
We take mexican dishes for granted — glad to see that somewhere they are still exotic
Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen says
I am a bean in my chili kind of girl, unless it is on my hot dog. Your pictures are mouth watering!!
Leslie @ La Cocina de Leslie says
Like you, I think a great chili HAS to include beans. 🙂
Great photo styling!
I add fresh ginger to onion and garlic and whole dried red peppers, to have a snack put cooked white rice in a carry on container top it with chili and finely chopped onions with some youghurt and have this while on the beachfront,,,, heavenly
