5 stars from 1 rating of Rustic BearPaw Ranch Chili Bowl Recipe

The easiest 15 minute turkey-chili you will ever make! BearPaw Ranch Chili is a delicious and easy recipe that is perfect for a cold winter day. Originally Chili was made with only a few ingredients -ground meat, spices -mostly cumin and chili powders. Fresh vegetables like tomatoes, garlic and onion were dependent upon the seasons...

So, carrots and celery or other available vegetables were simple substitutions. Once Bearpaw was trampled by hungry boy scouts earning badges for cooking, exploring and plain old outdoor fun... even making chili. BearPaw Ranch Chili is sure to please and is perfect for those hungry Boy Scouts on the go!

BearPaw Ranch now a wildlife sanctuary was once a national jamboree that ran wild with boy scouts earning badges for archery and navigation even cooking, but what fed all these young explorers? Chili

Once a food eaten by cowboys or ranchers for convenience made most often from available ingredients rather than favorite ingredients. Chili is now a food we most associate with Autumn or wintertime it was often consumed cool in the summer. Best cooked in a large Dutch Oven over an open fire the Boy Scouts often learn this technique only using a few hot coals from a fire, even though it is often cooked over a camp stove using propane then carried over with hot coals until ready to be consumed.

Why toppings make the dish?

First is it chili or stew?

If you think of tomato paste or canned tomatoes as a topping? Well then they are. You choose what ingredients you want in your chili.

Do you think all toppings are the same? It doesn't really matter!

"sharp" cheddar

sour cream



tortilla chips

In a bowl or on something?

Eaten alone or atop a starch define your dish as well.



Use leftovers to change dish next day
