Barbecue Chili Follow Me on Pinterest This Barbecue Chili recipe is one of my favorite cold-weather dinners. I’m not much of a cold-weather person, so when it dropped to 70 degrees here the other day, I figured that it was close enough to winter and went ahead and made this chili and some corn bread.

This recipe couldn’t be much easier – you brown the ground beef, throw everything in a pot, and then just let it simmer. So much of the flavor of this chili depends on the barbecue sauce that you use. I usually use one with brown sugar because we like it to be a little sweet and spicy, but just choose whatever you like, and it’ll be great!

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 (14 oz.) cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 (16-18 oz.) bottle of barbecue sauce
  • 1 tsp. chili powder (feel free to add more if you like things on the spicier side)
  • 1 T. molasses
  • 1 T. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 T. cumin
  • 1 T. brown sugar
  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, brown the ground meat. Drain.
  2. Return the cooked meat to the pot.

    This chili was delicious! I used Sweet Ray’s BBQ Hickory Smoke and Brown Sugar, and it was great. It was sweet and savory, one of my favorite chills now. Thanks for a great dinner

    I’m actually entering this is a chili cook off against my neighbors. I was told no one has ever done a barbecue chili. So this will be a first. But I love barbecue chili.

      It makes about 8-10 servings. Sorry. I’ve never measured it out, so I can’t give you an exact amount, but that’s an approximate yield.
