Easy Chili Con Carne Recipe For Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System From Val's Kitchen

My oldest loves chili. I make it in a few different ways. This particular recipe doesn’t use a seasoning packet. I like it because it uses the simplest of ingredients that I almost always have on hand. It’s a very mild chili, but some additional heat can easily be added right at the table with hot sauce. Here’s how I made it.

Easy Chili Con Carne


  • 3 lbs ground beef
  • 3x 15 oz cans kidney beans (I used pink, light red, dark red)
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 28 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 4 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder


Set the Ninja to stovetop high.

Brown the ground beef until it’s no longer pink.

Switch the Ninja to slowcoook low.

Add the remainder of the ingredients and cook for 2 hours.

Serve immediately.

This my idea of what chili should be all about – lots of meat and lots of tomatoey goodness. 🙂

I love a good chili in the winter, especially if it’s easy to make. Top my bowl with cheese, onion and sour cream please!

And chili is so easy to change up, my son likes heat so he adds some hot sauce.

If it’s nInja, it’s got to be good. They do some amazing things with their products. I have a blender and my son and his wife have a smoothie maker blender. both are amazing! Your Chili Con Carne sounds great!
