Texas Taco Chili

Hey peeps! I thought I’d share my recipe from our Chili Cook-Off at work last month! (I won the consumer award!)

This recipe is very easy, and turned out pretty great!


  • 1 Tablespoon Cooking Oil
  • 1/2 an Onion (Finely Chopped)
  • 1-1.5 lbs. Gound Beef
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1.5 cups Dr. Pepper
  • 2 small cans Tomato Sauce
  • 1 can Chili Beans
  • 2 small cans Rotel Diced Tomatoes with Chilis (Drained)
  • 1 small Jalepeno (Finely Chopped)
  • 3 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 Pack Ranch Dressing Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Garlic Salt

Shredded Cheese, Sour Cream, Cilantro, Tortilla Chips, Lime (For Serving)


  • Heat pan over medium heat and add oil. Once hot, add diced onions and let cook 2-3 minutes.
  • Add ground beef and let brown, breaking into small pieces as it is cooking.
  • Generously season with salt and pepper
  • In a crock pot,  add all other ingredients (Dr. Pepper, Tomato Sauce, Chili Beans, Rotel, Jalepeno, Taco Seasoning, Chili Powder, Ranch Powder, Garlic Salt)
  • Let cook on medium for 1-2 hours until heated through and slightly thickened
  • Served with shredded cheese, sour cream, cilantro, tortilla chips and sprinkle with fresh lime


This is a simple recipe that’s great for these cooler months of the year. Let me know if you give it a try in the comments below!

Have a great day, friends!
