Step-By-Step Guide


Chili can be frozen in containers, freezer bags, or aluminum pans. When freezing the chili in a container such as a glass jar, make sure to leave 1 inch of space at the top for expansion; if freezing in an aluminum pan or tin foil bag, leave 2 inches of space for expansion.

helpful tip


On a stovetop, add the ground beef to the Dutch oven. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt, and the ground, black pepper. Cook until browned, and drain any excess grease.

Add the diced onion to the pot, and cook for about 4 minutes or until the onion is translucent. Add in the freshly pressed garlic and cook for an additional minute.
