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.

  1. Heat oil in medium, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add onions, peppers and garlic; cook until vegetables are soft, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Season meat with Adobo. Add meat to the pot, breaking into small pieces with a wooden spoon. Cook until browned, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Stir in chili powder, cilantro and cumin, cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more.
  2. Add 1 cup water, chopped tomatoes (with liquid), beef bouillon and Sazon to pot. Bring tomato mixture to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until mixture thickens and flavors come together, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour. Stir in beans. Cook until heated through, about 15 minutes more.
  3. Divide chili among serving bowls. Garnish with cheese, sour cream and onions, if desired.

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 jalapeño and seasoning packet. My only complaint was that it was very greasy. Other than that it was quite tasty!
