Chili: Breakfast of Champions

Immediately after waking up (much different than Getting Up), I had a craving for chili. For more than an hour I mulled it over... Chili for breakfast? Should I? Or Shouldn't I?


With one comment, I headed downstairs to make a late breakfast. Want to know how I did it? Here's how:

Before moving forward, you'll need to *score some chili.

Step 1: Put some chili in your bowl.
Optional: Take a picture for your blog.

Step 1

Step 2: Add more because that doesn't look like enough chili.

Step 3: Heat it up.

Step 4: Add your cheese and crackers.
Optional: Take another picture for your blog.

Step 4

Step 5: Stir. Enjoy!
Optional: Take one last picture for your blog.

Step 5

Step 6: Digest.
Optional: Heartburn.

Step 7: Poop it out.
Optional: Exit burns.

*When having chili for breakfast, it's imperative that the chili is already made; today's breakfast was leftover from Sunday's dinner. Here's how I made it:

You’ll need:

- One giant crock pot

1 lb Ground Turkey
1 lb Spicey Sausage
6 Strips of Bacon

2 Medium Yellow Onions
1 Medium Red Onion (technically its purple)
1 Medium Green Pepper
1 Jalapeno
1-2 Tsp Minced Garlic

4 Cans (14.5 oz) Diced Tomatoes with Green Chiles
1 Can (14.5 oz) Chili Hot Beans
1 Can (14.5 oz) Red Beans
1 Can (14.5 oz) Dark Red Beans
1 Can (14.5 oz) Black Beans

½ Tsp Celery Seed
1 ½ Tsp Chili Powder
1 Tsp Red Pepper
½ Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Cumin

1 Cup Beef Broth

Step 1 – Cook the bacon and then chop it up. Brown the turkey and sausage (cook them separately). Dump all meats into the crock pot.

Step 2 – Wash and chop your veggies. Dump them into the crock pot.

Step 3 – Open up the canned goods. Dump them into the crock pot. (Recycle your cans, yo!)

Step 4 – Add your seasonings to the crock pot. (I like to mix my dry seasonings together in a separate bowl, and then add them to the crock pot.)

Step 5 – If there’s still room, add one cup of beef broth.

Step 6 – Close the crock pot. On high, it will take about 5-6 hours to cook.

Serving size: feeds a butt-load of people.

  1. That made me want chili. I made white chicken chili last week but I want honest to goodness real tomato-y chili with corn chips and a little bit of cheese (I'm generally watching what I eat, you know?) That will definitely have to be in the meal list for our next grocery go round. Although I have to make two pots because I like it sans meat. This is definitely chili and soup weather.

  2. Oh and are you copying Oooh yeah no mo-skee-toes!!!??? She had a recipe post early this morning. :D ha ha ha I think it's safe to say like it is with music, food, writing...everything's already been done at this point.

  3. I have several other food blogs on the way. I've been taking pictures of my soups and whatnot, but up until the last few weeks I wasn't keeping track of my recipes.

    Have you seen my flickr page? I have one too many food pictures, but I keep taking more. I'll have to add some of the more recent photos. My pancake pictures turned out splendidly.

  4. Wow, that looks really good. I love chili. I do mine in our slowcooker with chunks of tender beef. It's so good.

    Also, I drop a dollop of sour cream on top.

  5. It looks lovely. I put Fritos in my bowl first, then the chili, then a buttload of cheese. Mmmmm, breakfast of champions.

    My ex-husband used to put ketchup in my prize-winning chili. It was a contributing factor to the demise of our marriage.

  6. um...We made Chili last sunday too. We have been eating it ever since (breakfast, lunch and dinner). It is time to remove the Chili from my fridge and make it a home in the trash.
    *I second the idea to place a scoop of sour cream in it (Yum).
    Cheese, Crackers, and Tums.
    Great photo's.

  7. A good secret ingredient to add to chili is chocolate. It smooths out the taste a bit.
