Ways you can Thicken Your Chili 

Add in a thickening agent

One of the easiest ways one can thicken their chili is by putting in a thickening agent as your Chili is cooking.

How do thickening agents work?

This method works by breaking and dissolving the thickening agent like flour or cornstarch into a small amount of water and then adding these to your Chili. 

These agents have amounts of starch. This starch works by absorbing excess amounts of liquid and it in the end makes it congeal. Mixing the tomatoes and the beans inside the chili would aid in releasing the starch in them. This would also make the chili thicken too. 

Thickening after Serving

If you have a chili that’s quite soupy, you could thicken it just after you serve. These are helpful when you are feeding a group of people or some guests. Each person could decide exactly how thick they want their chili. 

If you want your Chili to thicken after you have served it. You could add in some tortilla chips or pour in some cornbread as toppings.
