Nicole’s Recipes: Nicole’s No Tomatoes Chili

by Nicole on October 10, 2012

I love chili but I am not a fan of chunky tomatoes in chili so I created my own no-tomatoes chili recipe! It is tangy and yummy with ground beef or ground turkey – your choice! You can also choose what kind of beans to add.  I love pinto beans so that’s what I’ve added but kidney beans would work just as well.

I’ll have to try this out! My husband hates tomatoes, so maybe he’ll like chilli better using this recipe.

hmm I don’t drink so I don’t have beer around, wonder if it would work with something else? I might have to try it without and see how it tastes, then decide lol I’m not a tomato fan so I might end up using it for something else, lol
