Want to go camping without leaving the house? It's time for some hearty Campfire Chili! This recipe is rich, smoky, and tastes like it's been cooked over a campfire for hours. Tastes great over a campfire too!
Why You'll Love This Recipe
When the weather starts changing, the chili starts cooking. It's just a way of life down south. You'll love the rich flavor of this delicious chili, which tastes great in a dutch oven on the stove, or outside over a campfire.
Canned beans work great in this dish. I found a new blend of kidney and pintos to try, but sometimes I add navy beans, black beans and whatever else I can find with the word 'bean' in it.
The smoky flavor of this chili will get you hook, line and sinker. The secret ingredient is liquid smoke, which is flavoring that tastes just like it sounds!
How to Make Campfire Chili
Fold in a can of chili beans and black beans, or whatever bean you like. Now, it's ready to simmer!
You'll love the way this recipe is created in one pot and how easy cleanup can be. If you're in a hurry, I'm sure you can make it in your Instant Pot, but I'm a lover of my cast iron dutch oven (ad) and low and slow cooking.
There's something comforting about standing over the stove, stirring chili on the heat, and watching it all come together.
