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. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. After 30 minutes serve the chili.  

8. Fill tummy. Empty bowl. Stay warm.

    Hello John,
    We added in the cook time for the chili. Once you combine the ingredients then you simmer for 30 minutes and can enjoy a nice warm bowl of chili. Thank you for pointing out that we did not have a time on the recipe.

    There are no times in the Signature Chugwater Chili recipe. I would appreciate it if you added them.

    I added Mexicorn (drained). Makes a real meal. And, sweet peppers are not a
    bad idea either.

    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!
