Recipe Details

Our 2 alarm chili kit recipe includes everything you need to know to make a spicy, flavorful meal. You’ll learn about the ingredients, how to prepare them, and some cool tips to make your chili even better.

Ingredients

The 2 alarm chili kit typically comes with:

  • Chili powder
  • Crushed red peppers
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Cumin
  • Salt
  • Corn flour (to thicken the sauce)
  • Cayenne pepper (for that extra heat!)

You will also need:

  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey
  • 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups water

Preparation Steps

  1. First, cook the ground meat in a large pot over medium heat. Keep stirring until the meat is brown and crumbly.
  2. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the pot. Cook them with the meat until they’re soft.
  3. Pour in the diced tomatoes and water. Stir everything together.
  4. Sprinkle the contents of your chili kit into the pot. Mix well so all the flavors blend together.
  5. Let your chili simmer for about 30 minutes. Stir it occasionally so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
  6. Add the kidney beans and let everything cook for another 10 minutes. Make sure it’s hot all the way through.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • If you’re not into meat, you can use chopped mushrooms or tofu instead for a vegetarian version.
  • Some people like their chili thicker. If that’s you, let it simmer for extra time until it’s as thick as you like.
  • For a milder chili, reduce the amount of cayenne pepper in the kit.

Serving Suggestions

Serve your 2 alarm chili hot. It’s great on its own or with rice. You can also top it with cheese, sour cream, or green onions for extra flavor and fun.

Nutritional Information

A serving of 2 alarm chili is rich in protein and fiber, thanks to the meat and beans. It’s also low in sugar and can be a good part of a balanced diet. Be mindful of the salt and adjust according to your health needs.
