"Classic, medium strength chili the whole family will enjoy. The slow-simmer method takes a little longer, but the results are worth the wait. We used pinto beans, but you can substitute red kidney or black beans."

  • Cooking Tip from LA COCINA GOYA
  • Control the Spiciness in your Pot of Chili: A good rule of thumb when working with a spicy chile, like a jalapeno: The finer you dice the pepper, the more surface area is exposed, and in turn, the more of the spicy oils it releases. Here, we roughly chop the pepper which creates a medium spicy effect. For an even hotter end product, cut the pieces into a very fine dice. Care for a mild, background spice? Keep the chili whole, and fish it out at the end.

Simply Sensational Chili Haiku: "Love Goya products! Their recipes always win. Rock my socks' chili!" This is a no frills, slurpin' good chili. I made it exactly as written, except left out the jalapeno to appease to the more delicate taste buds of a toddler, and I also tossed in a can of kidney beans. I also used fresh garlic (5 cloves), left it in the crock pot for 8 hours on low (smelled sinfully good), and served w/ green onion, cilantro, and sour cream. Hubbie says "Good, but no Sazon Goya next time" as he spent the afternoon Googling MSG, which is the #1 ingredient in those wee envelopes. I was just happy to make a Chili that didn't have a generic "Chili Flavor Packet" dumped into it. So /deep breath/ -- to sum up -- this is a simple, and yes, simply sensational, chili that tastes like chili and isn't dominated by any one ingredient or spice. Just.Good.Chili.


This is exactly as advertised; great for the whole family. We live in Texas and not all of the GOYA products are availabe in most grocery stores. So we stock up on them. I omit the beans and this recipe turns out great! I have made this about 6 times and the recipe is very easy to double. This is a homerun for anyone!


I'm not familiar with Goya products so we used what we had. We omitted the jalapeƱo and seasoning packet. My only complaint was that it was very greasy. Other than that it was quite tasty!
