Texas Roadhouse Chili Recipe

Texas Roadhouse Chili is a great copycat recipe just like the real thing. Fix yourself a bowl and curl up for the evening.

As we get deeper into fall, chili starts finding its way on our menu more and more. I know in my family, a good pot of chili just makes all the cares of the day go away.

I start daydreaming when it comes to fall and imagine myself sitting outside enjoying a nice bowl of chili while watching the kids play.

Last year, I had this playing out in my head but I was dreaming about it in the country at a house we had fallen in love with. This fall, that dream is going to be a reality as we are now in that country house.

I can’t wait to watch all those beautiful trees change colors and enjoy the crisp, cool air.

Chili is the icing on the cake for me during the colder months, my husband too. We both have a difference of opinion when it comes to pairing items with chili. For myself, I absolutely love chili with cornbread.

Growing up those two just went together, we did not have one without the other.

Then, I met my husband and he will never eat chili without Fritos. In my mind if Fritos are involved it’s Frito Pie, and that just changes the recipe a bit for me. I like my sweet cornbread.

This past week, I decided to try to a copycat recipe from Texas Roadhouse. We love Texas Roadhouse, but it is sometimes a challenge to actually go there to eat, so the next best option is to make your own at home.

It’s interesting preparing this recipe because many people prefer the cubed stew meat in the Texas Roadhouse chili along with ground beef too, but it seems that their chili only has the cubed meat in it.

I went ahead and stuck with just the stew meat in our chili. We really enjoyed it as typically we always use ground beef. It was a nice change of pace to our traditional recipe.

If we're getting crazy, you could pair this with another copycat recipe, with our Red Lobster biscuit recipe. Or how about Texas Roadhouse Seasoned Rice?
