Description’s starting to get chilly out! Good thing this recipe is full of spices that are sure to bring the heat and warm you up quickly. KRAVE Jerky can replace ground beef or turkey in any chili recipe, but we had to share our special chili recipe below with you.

Serves: 8


1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
1 Large Red Onion – chopped
1 Large Yellow Onion – chopped
6 Garlic Cloves – minced
1 (6oz) Can Tomato Paste
3 Tablespoons Chili Powder
½ Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
2-3 3.25oz Bags KRAVE Garlic Chili Pepper Beef Jerky – chopped
3 (14.5oz) Cans Diced Tomatoes in Juice
1 (12oz) Bottle Lager Beer
2 (14.5oz) Cans Kidney Beans – rinsed and drained
Coarse Salt & Ground Pepper
*Optional - Sour Cream or Plain Greek Yogurt, Chopped Scallions


In a Dutch oven or large (5-quart) heavy pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add onions and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes.

Add tomato paste, chili powder, chipotles, and cinnamon. Cook, stirring, until mixture has begun to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add KRAVE Jerky and cook an additional 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes with their juice, beer, and beans. Bring to a boil, and reduce to a rapid simmer. Cook over medium heat until chili has thickened slightly and beans are tender, about 5 minutes. Dollop with sour cream or Plain Greek yogurt and top with scallions - if desired!
