1. Gather Ingredient

Gather all the necessary ingredients. For a basic chili, you'll need ground beef (or another protein like turkey or chicken), canned diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, kidney beans, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and any other preferred seasonings or optional ingredients like bell peppers or jalapeños.

2. Brown the Meat

In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until it's fully cooked. Break up the meat with a spoon as it cooks to ensure it browns evenly. Drain off any excess fat.

7. Taste and Adjust Seasoning
