Transforming Strength Dump and Go Chili Recipe

Dump and Go Chili is a nutritious and healthy recipe recommended by Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach Matt Hartsky.


  • 2 Pounds ground beef (any ground meat works)
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 3 to 4 Cloves garlic
  • 1 Large bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 to 4 Stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 Teaspoons chili powder
  • Dash of Cayenne Pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Brown all above in a large pot or Dutch Oven. Until meat is crumbly and vegetables are cooked.

Add to meat mixture:

  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • 1 can red pinto beans
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 (30 oz) cans chili beans

Spice it up as much as you like. It is quite mellow. 

Simmer on the back of the stove for as long as you need. At least 30 minutes. The longer the better. (Can be cooked all day in a crock pot).

This freezes well for future meals. 

Serving size = 1.5 cups.
