Signature Chugwater Chili

Leslie Beadles Chugwater Chili

Flavorful best describes our Signature Chugwater Chili. Not too spicy. Not too sweet. And just like your favorite coat, Signature Chugwater Chili goes with just about everything, clean up is easy, and it keeps you warm. 

  • 2 lbs. of ground beef, 85% lean
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans of pinto beans
  • 1 (15 ounce) can of tomato sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons of Chugwater Chili Seasoning

1. In a heavy bottomed pan, brown the ground beef. Break it into pieces about 1/4 of an inch.

2. A pastry blender also doubles as a handy way to break up ground meat.

3. Add 3 Tablespoons of Chugwater Chili Seasoning.

4. Add 1 (15 ounce) can of tomato sauce.

5. Clean the can with water and add desired amount to Signature Chugwater Chili.

6. Give the mixture a good stir, and add two cans of pinto beans.

7. Gently stir in the beans. The liquid from two cans of pinto beans is almost one cup, so for a thicker Signature Chugwater Chili, drain the beans.

8. Fill tummy. Empty bowl. Stay warm.

    I have used Chugwater Chili for several years and absolutely love it! I always get compliments at group gatherings, so thank you for sharing your wonderful recipe. The entire reason that I decided to try this mix in the first place was because of the name Chugwater which reminded me of the town of Chugwater, WY, which I drove through several times a year from Sheridan, WY to Fort Collins. I ALWAYS smiled when I went through Chugwater. Loved the terrain. Loved the name. It all screamed “Western Romance Novel” in my brain! (Hmmmm…maybe you all should get a weekly show on cable …. something like
    “Chugwater Chili …. Saucy….” OK – I did see that handsome Western man in the video on your home page ….. he did set my heart a flutter but then I thought – Oh wait! I’m a grandma….
    ANYhow, I really, really, really love your seasoning mix and share my accolades at every opportunity. I like to send packets in holiday cards – heyyy…. that’s a good advertising promo:-) Keep on!

    Gave this to my brother in law several years ago. One of his favorite stories is how he enjoyed it so much he decided to enter it into his town’s chili cook off and he came out the winner! We love Chugwater Chili and gift it often.

    I love the chili flavor. I add to my chili: diced onion and green bell pepper as ground beef is being browned, and a can of finely diced tomato and its juice with the tomato sauce. I use all of the bean liquid, since I like to crumble my crackers into the chili and let them soak up the flavor.

    Its my first time I hope its good. But if Leslie is promoting it must be good chili….

    I really enjoy this with medium grilled steaks cubed and substituted for 1/2 the burger. Won’t make chili without this seasoning.
