One Pot 5 Ingredient Chili

Difficulty: Easy

Yields: 4-6 Servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 Minutes

Total Time: 25 Minutes


~ 1 lb. Johnsonville Cooking Sausage (If you would ground beef or turkey, go for it)

~ 3 (15 oz.) cans diced tomatoes with green chilies

~ 2 (15 oz.) cans kidney beans, or whatever type of beans you desire, drained

~ 1 small white onion, diced

~ 2 Tbsp. chili powder

Optional Ingredients


Sour Cream


Chopped Green Onions

Hot Sauce

Any other topping you would like to put on your chili when serving it.


In a large cook Sausage (or ground beef or turkey) over medium-high heat until browned, stirring frequently.  Drain the excess grease. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes or until the onion is cooked and softened.

Serve warm with optional toppings.

***Note: If you like your chili a little less spicy, only put one tablespoon of chili powder in.  this has quite a kick to it otherwise!

I put rice, then cheese on mine, then I put the chili on top of it.  This chili was amazing and I think the Johnsonville sausage is what did the trick!
