Walt Disney's Favorite Chili Recipe!

Do you love the food at Disney Parks?  Do you find yourself craving the hearty meals you sit down to after a day of play? Then I have the recipe for you.

After coming home from my first Disneyland trip many years ago I was craving something classic Disney. With fall on the horizon "Walt’s Own Chili" recipe sounded fabulous!

I have made the dish over a half dozen times and it never disappoints. I used the Cooking with Mickey and the Disney Chefs cookbooks as my base. I made the recipe more personal by adding extra spices to suit my taste.


1 lb. ground beef
3/4 lb. beef stew meat
1 small onion- diced
1 medium green pepper-diced
4 cloves garlic- minced
1⁄2 cup oil (vegetable or olive)
1 cup chopped celery
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tsp. paprika
1 plum tomato- diced (for garnish)
1 large 28 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 1/2 cups water
1 14.5 ounce can pinto beans- rinsed/drained/dried overnight
Salt to taste

*Garnish with Sour Cream, Shredded Cheddar
Cheese, Diced Tomatoes


Makes approximately six servings 

  • Add beans to pan and cover with water (2 inches over beans). Simmer with onions until tender (2 hours).
  • Heat oil and sautee garlic.
  • Brown beef with celery until lightly browned.  
  • Add remaining ingredients, and simmer for 1 hour.
  • Once beans are tender, add sauce to chili base and simmer together for 1⁄2 hour.  
  • Serve topped with garnish 
  • Enjoy!
