May’s Dish is serving up Saxon’s own Jake Meyer’s favorite foods.

Outside of the office, Jake enjoys spending time with friends and family.  An avid sports fan, he enjoys attending sporting events as often as possible, which makes sense that his favorite dish at home is gameday ready. His quick, easy and delicious chili is ready in 30 minutes and is the perfect dish to bring to the get-together. It’s simple, enough to share and always a crowd favorite.

Quick, easy and delicious chili ready in 30 minutes


  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • ½ onion, diced
  • ½ green pepper, diced
  • 1 packet of chili seasoning
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can chili style tomatoes (can substitute regular diced tomatoes)

  • 1 can chili beans (can substitute regular kidney beans)
  • Kosher or sea salt

  • Brown 1 lb. of ground beef
  • Add ½ of a medium sized diced onion and ½ of a diced green pepper and cook until they begin to soften
  • Add 1 packet of chili seasoning and stir to coat the meat
  • Add 2 cans of tomatoes and 2 cans of beans. Stir mixture together
  • Add a pinch of kosher or sea salt
  • Season with chili powder, cumin and your favorite hot sauce to taste. I prefer it spicy so I am very liberal with these ingredients.
  • Simmer for 10 minutes to thicken and let the flavors meld together


*Top with diced raw onion, cheese and sour cream as desired.  Serve with sweet cornbread and enjoy!

*Feeds 4-6 people

When Jake is enjoying a night out he loves to try fun new restaurants and bars, but his favorite spot is Terry’s Turf Club feature’s the best burgers in Cincinnati and perhaps the world, according to Jake.  Their wide variety of toppings (you can top your burger with crab cake or lobster meat if you choose) sets Terry’s apart and allows you to get creative with your burger.

It’s a small, hole-in-the-wall kind of place so expect a wait on a Friday or Saturday night.  Grab a craft beer from the bar while you wait, because I promise the burger is worth it!
