Coca Cola Chili

#

Perfect for these chilly fall nights! This recipe was created when I couldn’t find my dads trusty recipe and started getting creative on my own. Turned out pretty darn tasty if I do say so myself! 🙂

Coca Cola Chili
 
Ingredients
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 2 cans water
  • 1 can rotel, drained
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 can coke (regular, not diet)
  • 4 tbsp chili powder (or more to taste)
  • 2 15oz cans kidney beans, drained
  • red pepper to taste
  • salt to taste
  • Masa or flour to thicken
Instructions
  1. Brown ground beef in stock pot over medium high heat, add all ingredients except red pepper and masa/flour. Boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 hours. Add red pepper (optional) masa/flour mixed with water (I do ¼ cup water to 2 tbsp flour - or cheat and use the 2 alarm chili kit at King Soopers ) and simmer for additional 20 min+. Top with cheese and sour cream to taste.
  2. Not very spicy but DH dumps a heap of red pepper and jalepeno's in his. The coke made it really really really really really yummy! A sweet taste almost. HEAVEN!

    Hey Jackie,

    I am the director of the Archives for Coca-Cola and would love to get your permission to repost or link to your recipe on our Coca-Cola Heritage Blog, http://www.Coca-ColaConversations.com. We blog about Coke history, artifacts, art, sports and pop culture… including recipes. October is National Chili month, and, rather than just repost the same recipe I did two years ago, I wanted to find a new one. Your recipe sounds great. Can I get your permission to link back to this recipe?

    FYI, I saw your bio, I have a daughter and also have three sons, one (now 15) with Autism.

    Very tasty! I had someone bring Coke to my new years party and I don’t drink soda, so I wanted to find a good way to get rid of it. Thanks!
