The Recipe:

Get the Game Going With Tailgate Chili

By:  Ari  Bendersky  Abe's Market Contributor  September 26th, 2013

Who doesn't love a great bowl of chili — especially at a tailgate party with some cold beer when you're getting ready for a game? Our friends at Larry's Southwestern Sauces came up with a super easy recipe for a turkey- or beef-based chili that includes beans and their all-natural, gluten-free and vegetarian Ranchero sauce. With jalapeños already added to the sauce, it definitely adds a little kick — maybe you should offer some up to the kicker!

Larry's Southwestern Ranchero Sauce Tailgate Chili


  • 1 T vegetable oil 
  • 1/2 lbs ground turkey or beef 
  • 1 15 oz. can black, red or pinto beans, drained 
  • 1 16 oz. jar Larry's Southwestern Ranchero Sauce 
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 1 lime cut into wedges 
  • Tortilla chips


  1. Heat the oil in a medium sized pot and brown the turkey or beef.
  2. Add the drained beans and Larry's Ranchero Sauce.
  3. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for for 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt, a squeeze of lime juice and tortilla chips.

Serves 4
