Can I freeze the leftover chili?

The chili will keep very well in the freezer. It’s very nice to have on hand when you want something tasty but just don’t feel like cooking.

Store leftovers in an airtight container, then store them in the freezer for up to 6 months. Alternatively, for shorter storage, you can keep your leftovers in the refrigerator for about 3 days.

How to Make Ninja Foodi Chili spicier or softer

The combination of chili powder, black pepper, garlic and jalapeno adds only a small touch of weight. However, if you prefer a very mild chili, you can reduce the chili powder and replace the jalapeno with bell pepper.

On the other hand, if you love your hot chili, consider adding some hot sauce to the mix. Ground cayenne pepper would also give you a little extra heat


Also, remember that the membranes inside jalapeño peppers are what make them spicy. Keep the membranes or remove them as best you can depending on how hot you like your chili!

Can I cook this recipe in a cooking pot slow?

Sure! This process can be easily modified for slow cook chili.

The only difference is that ground beef will have to be cooked in a pan first.
