Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Time to Table: 1 Hour

Serves: 12 (1 cup per serving)


  • 1 pound 95% lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped bell peppers (orange, red, yellow, or green)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2 15 ounce cans light kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 15 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup Daisy Light Sour Cream


In a Dutch oven, over medium heat, cook and stir the ground beef, onion, pepper, and garlic until beef is no longer pink and the vegetables are crisp tender (8 to 9 minutes). Add the chili powder, cumin and pepper to the Dutch oven. Continue cooking for 1 minute. Add the kidney beans, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and water to the Dutch oven. Cook and stir until the chili comes to a boil (5 to 6 minutes). Reduce the heat to medium low. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve individual bowls of chili with a dollop of Daisy Sour Cream. Garnish with shredded cheese, avocado slices, and a few dashes of hot pepper sauce if desired.

I love it. My wife loves it too! She suggested a little more chili powder and some salt. I liked it just how it was, but a little salt wouldn't hurt.

This is basically the same recipe that I use to make my chili. It is so easy and simple to make! And it comes out delicious each and every time! Of course no bowl of chili is complete without a dollop of Daisy! Thanks to Influenster I got my Daisy for #free

Sour cream is the perfect addition to a nice hot bowl of chili and corn bread. I love the new squeeze pouches so I can just squeeze it right on top.

I made this recipe on football Sunday for my guests. Everyone raved at how good it was and the dollop of daisy really helped to balance the heat for those who don't like much spice! I left my Influenster sample of Daisy Squeeze on the counter when it was a 'help yourself' time to eat! Everyone squeezed the bottle onto their chili and I had no messy container or spoon to clean up! Great recipe made family friendly with Daisy Squeeze!

I make a lightened chili quite often and this is one of my go to recipes, yummy! I tried Daisy Sour Cream for free via #Influenster so I topped the chili with that and some sharp cheddar cheese and and chives and it was FANTASTIC! The creaminess of Daisy's really added to the dish. I had been an avid Breakstone sour cream fan, but think I am making the switch! Thanks Influenster!

This recipe was to die for! So good and so easy! My kids loved it. Just the right amount of flavor without over doing it!

My hubby made this chili for dinner (with different beans) and it was amazing! The sour cream topping was basically the icing on the cake! I tested Daisy Squeeze Sour Cream thanks to Daisy and Influenster for review purposes, but my honest opinion is that the squeeze bottle is awesome!

My hubby prepared this recipe, adding a few different types of beans as his special twist

I prepared this recipe for my family tonight and it was great! With the weather cool, this recipe is perfect for your tummy! Topping it off with daisy sour cream just adds the perfect touch for the chili. Daisy sour cream is fresh , light tasting and perfect for all dishes . I received Daisy sour cream complimentary from #influenster for testing puposes. I would just like to say try it, you want regret it!
