Making chili is one of our family's favorite dinners. It super easy to make and, if you make enough, can be eaten over a few days to minimize cooking in the future. You can make chili recipes with a variety of meats as well. Below are the meats you can make in chili recipes.
What type of meats can be used in chili?
Chicken boneless skinless breast
Chicken boneless skinless thighs
Now that you know what type of meat you can use in your recipe. Today, we are sharing our favorite chili recipes categorized by the meat list above.
Finding the right chili recipe for your family can take some time. While I usually stick to the easy-to-find meat options, I will definitely try the ground chicken, brisket chili, and short ribs chili recipe in the future. I do not have these variations on the blog, so I shared some from popular publications here. =)
Keep in mind that the recipes below are usually a serving of four to six. If you want to double it, please make the adjustments to the recipe.
Note: the recipe titles below in CAPS are from Sabrina's Organizing Blog.
Chili Recipes Sorted by Meat Type
Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast chili
Chicken boneless skinless breast chilis are lighter and will shred when you cook it for a while. Below is one recipe we have on our site.
Chicken Thigh Boneless Skinless Chili
Chicken thighs have extra fat on them, so they come out nice in a chili dish. I do find that it will easily separate into pieces while cooking for a while.
Chili recipe with Ground Chicken
Ground chicken may not be found easily. You may have to look for it. Below is a recipe I found on the Taste of Home website if you do find it.
Easy White Chicken Chili from Taste of Home website
Ground Turkey Chili
As you can see, we love ground turkey! So much so I made THREE recipes over the years. ALl of them are delicious and super easy to make.
Beef Chuck Chili Recipes
I never used beef chuck to make beef chili before 2004 when we visited Maine friends. They had some great recipes, and I just had to get it and make it my own.
AMAZING TEXAS CHILI RECIPE << This recipe can be doubled and eaten half now and half later.
Ground Beef Chili Recipes
Of course, ground beef is very common for chili. I found that having it with a little fat makes slow cooker recipes not dry out. When I used the lean, I would have to add more fat so it does not dry out.
Below is the recipe I found from a magazine.
Texas Beef Brisket Chili from Bon Appetit Magazine
Short Ribs Recipe
I found this recipe on Food and Wine Magazine website.
