  • Author: Chew Out Loud
  • Yield: 10 1x


This Chili with Sriracha can be made in the slow cooker or in a heavy pot. Either way, the result is certain to be the BEST chili your friends have ever tasted! Don’t be afraid to make a big pot of this good stuff. Leftovers are incredible!


  • 2 lbs lean ground turkey or beef
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup Sriracha hot sauce (found in major grocery stores, in Asian aisle)
  • 1 can (32 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp table salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 can (16 oz) kidney beans, drained
  • 1 can (16 oz) black beans, drained
  • 1 can (16 oz) can Italian diced tomatoes, with juices
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 large green peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • Shredded cheddar for garnish, if desired


  1. Brown the ground meat together with 1 tsp garlic powder and 1 tsp kosher salt. Drain. Place all ingredients in a slow-cooker or a heavy pot. Stir well to combine all ingredients. If using a crock pot, cook on low 6-7 hours or on high about 4-5 hours. If using a heavy pot, bring to simmer and let simmer covered for 4 hours.
  2. Serve hot. Garnish with cheese, if desired.
  3. * Add more Sriracha, if you prefer a spicier chili!
  4. * Sometimes I add frozen sweet corn kernels to the mix!
