Today’s recipe will be the best red chicken chili recipe you’ll ever eat. Yes, I’m that confident you’ll love this incredible chili soup.
This is an easy red chicken chili made in the dutch oven – a chili without beans, that’s both filling and quick to prepare. Watch how it comes together in this recipe video.
Best Red Chicken Chili Recipe
My all-meat and veggie chili obsession began three years ago when I created my favorite Paleo Chili recipe of all time. It’s relatively fast to cook, and the flavors are enhanced (I believe) when cooked in a cast-iron pot or skillet. With dozens of great reviews and over six million visits, it has been one of the most popular recipes on this website, until now.
For today’s recipe, I traded in my cast-iron skillet for a Dutch oven to share with you this wonderful red chicken chili recipe.
Both of these Paleo-friendly chili recipes are also perfect if you are doing the Whole30! After trying it a few times on my own, I found that the biggest thing that helped me succeed at Whole30 was when I got my whole family to do it with me. But as I’m sure you can guess, that took some adjusting. I needed recipes that my kids and I could both enjoy that would help us ditch all processed foods together, for the whole month!
Don’t worry, I’m not keeping all the secrets to myself, I put everything YOU need to succeed at the Whole30 with your family into my Family KickStart Program. Click on that link to see for yourself how we’ve been able to do it at our house multiple times (even with super picky eaters!).
Dutch Oven Red Chicken Chili
Okay, back to today’s recipe. I’m confident that this healthy chicken chili recipe will rival the classic on both flavor and heartiness. It’s very filling, and the flavors are -once again- enhanced by simmering on low in my cast iron enamelled Dutch oven.
The 6-quart size Dutch oven is the perfect size for a family. Whether you are cooking for four, six, or eight, it cooks meals to perfection. I cook the best pot roasts, soups, my famous chicken stew, gumbos, and bolognese sauce, and my ridiculously delicious chilis. The Dutch oven can go from the stovetop to the oven without a fuss, and it keeps food warm long after I remove it from the heat since the cast iron retains heat like no other cookware.
Let’s face it, the Dutch oven also looks gorgeous on the table.
Red Chicken Chili Ingredients
So this red chicken chili recipe is just the kind of dinner you can put together with leftover chicken or a ready-to-eat rotisserie chicken from the store. If you’re working with frozen, you can defrost your chicken quickly with these instructions. Got your chicken? Perfect, here’s the full list of ingredient’s you’ll need:
- Jalapeno pepper
- poblano peppers
- Salt, pepper & spices
- Chicken broth
- Chicken or turkey if you are making leftover turkey chili
- Cilantro & avocado for topping
If you don’t have poblano peppers, use an additional green pepper, but know that you’ll miss the smoky-heat that the poblano brings to the recipe.
How to Make Red Chicken Chili
This chicken chili recipe couldn’t be easier to make on your stove. Here is how it’s done.
In your Dutch oven sauté the peppers, onions and garlic until soft
Add the chili powder, cumin and coriander to the pot and continue to toast the spices.
- Stir & Simmer
Add the chicken broth, lime juice, zucchini and chicken, stir together and simmer for 20 minutes
After simmering, salt & pepper to taste and serve with avocado slices and chopped cilantro.
I hope you enjoy this flavorful chicken chili as much as my family does. We make this recipe all year long.
How to Freeze Red Chicken Chili
This chili tastes even better the second day and freezes great for future meals and thermos lunches. Everything you need to know about freezing this recipe and all other soups and chilis, right below:
- Allow the soup to cool down to room temperature
- Pack it into large, freezer-safe zip bags.
- Label zip bags with the date and reheating instructions.
- Place bags on a large sheet pan and transfer to the freezer for 2 hours.
- Once frozen, remove them from the sheet pan, and store for up to 2-3 months.
When you’re ready for hot soup, remove the desired amount of bags from the freezer and defrost in the fridge overnight or transfer the entire frozen soup block(s) to a large saucepan and reheat over medium heat until defrosted. Add about ½ to 1 cup of additional broth or water to the soup and bring to a boil. Now you are ready to enjoy.

Easy Red Chicken Chili Recipe
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 medium jalapeno pepper seeds removed and minced
- 2 medium poblano peppers chopped
- 1 large onion chopped
- 4 garlic cloves minced
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
- 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 2 limes juiced, plus lime wedges, for serving
- 3 large zucchini peeled and diced
- 1 rotisserie chicken skin removed and meat shredded (about 3-4 cups)
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro leaves plus more for garnish
- 1 avocado sliced
- Add the oil to a large 6-quart Dutch oven and heat it over medium-high heat. Add the peppers, onions, and garlic and sauté until soft and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
- Season the vegetables with salt, and pepper, to taste. Add the cumin, coriander, and chili powder and continue to sauté for 1 more minute to toast the spices. Stir in the chicken broth, lime juice, zucchini, and shredded chicken. Simmer for 20 minutes.
- After 20 minutes of simmering, taste for seasoning, and adjust if necessary.
- Serve the chili in individual bowls topped with avocado slices and chopped cilantro.
- If you can’t find poblano peppers, you can use green peppers but the chili will not be as “smoky” in flavor.
- For lower heat, you can use ½ of the jalapeño pepper and freeze extra. For added heat, keep seeds and sauté them with vegetables.

we love this chili!
I would love to cook a roast in a dutch oven. As a mom to 6 month old b/g twins and a 7 year old, and a big kid husband, I am always cooking ahead. Thanks for the chance!
I would love a dutch oven. My grandmother used to used one and everything tasted amazing. I would not only make her recipes in there, I would make delicious soups, sauces, pretty much anything healthy that I can. I love the even heating of them.
I’ve been wanting a Dutch oven for years and just haven’t been able to fit it in my budget yet! I’m transitioning to using healthier cookware and this would be a great addition. I’d not only use it for the standard fare – soups, stews, maybe even chicken biryani would work. BUT I’d also use it for popcorn! I’ve heard it can work great on the stovetop for popcorn and would be a healthier alternative to cook it in 🙂
I would cook stew and a bunch of soups!
I would love to win this, and would probably start by making a roast for tacos.
Laura, thank you for the great recipes you send out! This give-away of the Lodge Porcelain Enameled Cast Iron Dutch oven is thoughtful and generous. I am attempting to cook healthier items and would love the opportunity to cook two of our favorite recipes: Sausage and Peppers, (using spicy chicken sausage) and homemade spaghetti and meatballs. Thank you again for all,the recipes.
Chili. Thanks for the opportunity to win!
My family loves my beer chili recipe. It’s so yummy and perfect with cornbread! Would be awesome to win this and make it with this Dutch oven! My current pot is barely able to hold all of my ingredients without spilling over! Thank you for the chance!!
love this!! with it being 6 people in my family i would put a boston butt in slow cook and split up the meat to make up two different dinners maybe pull pork sandwiches and tacos another night!
I have been wanting one of these pots for a very long time!!!!! I make soups and chili all the time. I have yet to perfect my chili recipe, but o would have lots of fun working on it with this pot.
What WOULDN’T I make in this Dutch Oven?? I LOVE cast iron- it’s the best and so versatile! And I don’t have a Dutch Oven, so the joys of using one are foreign to me… I believe I would use it for just about anything I could!!! Soups, casseroles, desserts, stews- mmmmmmm……..
Lets see…. a beef roast. Love me a good roast beef with carrots and potatoes…Mmmmmm. ;0)
I’d use the dutch oven to make no knead bread!

Definitely yummy beef/lamb & vegie stews and I would try making Beef Burgundy for something different.
I would cook soup in the Dutch oven because I love soup!!
I have always wanted to buy a Dutch oven because I have so many recipes that call for one. I have looked at them, but I am never sure which one to buy and what size. My family eats lots of soups during the cold winters and I would love to try cooking them in a Dutch oven.
I can cook everything in it. Soup, beans, ….
I would make Indian spiced lentils!
I don’t own a dutch oven. I don’t know how to braise meat, so I think I’d use the dutch oven to braise. It’s for braising, right? I’m obviously kind of clueless in this type of cooking.
Soups and stews!
I love to make my mom’s chicken cacciatore in my dutch oven! Brings me right back to the formica kitchen table of the 1960’s.
There are so many things I would love to cook in such a large Dutch oven, but I would probably start with Jamie Oliver’s milk chicken. It’s a perfect dish for the whole family!
It’s great soup and chili weather!
This recipe looks wonderful!
If I won a Dutch Oven, I would cook everything in it! I’ve always wanted one but could never afford it. My family has a recipe for pot roast that has been passed down that is so good! I would love to be able to make it at my home.
I would love this dutch oven to make homemade bread. I had a clay pot I used, but my husband broke it. This pot would be indestructible 🙂

Burgundy Braised Short Ribs with vegetables and Olive Sourdough Bread finished off with Lemon Zest Cheesecake ALL made in my Father’s Dutch oven over 82yrs old. This was passed down to me after his passing. I call it my Heavenly Dutch Angel. So good it will bring anyone back to the kitchen & finishing with little clean up. Truly a blessing in every moment.
I’d love to try your recipe and make our family favorites like Chicken Cacciatore and Beef Stew, Chili and even baking bread
I would make soups and pot roast..
I think I’d start with soup! 🙂
I would love to cook chicken tortilla soup or roast in a new dutch oven
I’m a huge fan of Lodge. I’ve even visited their store in Tennessee, but I’ve never really been able to afford anything of their larger items. That seems a little ironic since we have a large family. The whole family would be ‘over the moon’ eating meals made in a Lodge Dutch Oven!
Would love the Dutch oven to cook, soups, pasta and many more recipes! 🙂
So many things! But chili sounds particularly good right now. Thanks!
Tandoori chicken 🙂
I love soups so I would make all my soups there! Also, I have read about using them for baking artisan bread and I would love to try that.
What a pleasure it would be to have some new cookware. Mine is a little sad.Would love to try new recipe in my very own new dutch oven,
I would love to make a lasagna in this dutch oven like what my daughter makes for girl scouts.
Growing up, my mom had a blue dutch oven. It reminds me of cooking chili with my mom. Recipe looks great.

I hope I win!
The chili recipe sounds and looks wonderful! Thanks for sharing it. Buying a dutch oven has been on my to do list for a while. I’d love to make homemade minestrone soup, vegetarian chili, or spaghetti sauce in it. It’d be especially nice when we go to potluck dinners with groups of friends. (It’d make for a much nicer presentation than my current much-battered, old soup pot. )
I would love one of these. I used to have a big cast iron dutch oven with a lid and everything but ironically enough (thinking of your email) I lost that one to Hurricane Charlie back when we lived in Florida and never replaced it!
This would be even better because it’s enameled. Gosh, it’d be great to be able to sear meat on the stove and then stick it right in the oven and know it’d cook properly. I’d probably use it at least three times a week or more. And the recipe looks yummy!
I would make some white chicken chili!
I’d make my family’s favorite chili, which is my best friends moms recipe 🙂
I have been eyeing a cast iron pot for some time. We do a lot of camping and that is apparently the ideal way to cook when using an open fire or hot coals outdoors. However this pot is way too pretty! I would use this pretty pot to make soups, stews, roast chicken or beef and recipes that I need to finish off in the oven. Like a tamale pie with a cornbread top. yum!
I would cook either unstuffed cabbage rolls or American goulash
I saw that Lodge Dutch and I want to make Chicken and Dumplings! Also break out my grandma’s cookbook and remind myself of all the right ways to cook using cast iron! I love the taste of the food, the way cast iron cooks is a dream come true, and now they look so pretty! Let’s see, chicken gumbo, ANYTHING with beef and tomatoes-cast iron always makes those taste great-, chili, stew, fish-you name it, cast iron always makes it better!
TerriLyn, CONGRATS!! You are our winner of the Dutch Oven. Check your inbox soon for an email from [email protected].
Beans! We always have a pot of traditionally cooked beans on our stove. Imagine how great they would look in that pot
I love and dream of Dutch ovens… What a great way to cook Beef and Broccoli or Pepper Steak! Or a fantastic upside-down maple syrup cake…
Being from Canada, we have several months of cold winter and brisk autumn. I can forsee using the Dutch oven to make comfort, hearty foods such as soups and stews. What a warm welcome that would be!
I would love to cook chili, chicken and dumplings or chicken tortilla soup. I have always wanted one to cook in.
I love going Paleo with my family! I frequently hit the barrier of not having enough healthy snacks and meals. This one is going on my list of recipes to try!!!
If I won the dutch oven, I’d make a nice stew with whatever I have. 😉
Without a doubt, I would invite my parents over for supper and immediately make a loaf of crusty bread for them to go with some sort of soup. They love my fresh bread, but I’ve never been able to make some crusty bread like I could in a dutch oven!
I might be brave enough to finally try to braise short ribs. Have always wanted to try them, but don’t have the right kitchen gear to cook them! Can’t wait to try your soup. Thanks for the great recipes and ideas!!
I would love to win this! I am definitely going to try this recipe; I think my family would love it! I also love making butternut squash soup and chicken with wild rice soup!
That recipe looks delish! I’d love to make a vegi soup.
I’ve been wanting to try to make some bread pudding in a dutch oven! mmmmmmmmmmm…. 🙂
I would love- love- love to win a Dutch Oven! I have been looking at them in the store for years, but the cost is outside of my budget.
Love all your recipes and trying them all the time 🙂
Never won anything but would love to 🙂
Thank you for all that you do and for the yummy healthy recipes
thank you for visiting my website! Good luck!

I like to make veggies and soups.
I’d love to win a Dutch oven! I had one until it the enamel started chipping off the bottom (it was a low-end quality one)… I used it for most meals! Spaghetti sauce, soups, chili, roasts, one-pot meals, etc. I’ve missed mine and would love to have another one! 🙂

I would cook anything and everything in that pot!!!
I love a spicy chili!

I’m just learning to use cast iron, so I’d have to look up recipes. 🙂

A roast or maybe even a large batch of vegetable soup or even beef stew
I have a Lodge Dutch oven that I use for baking bread. It bakes nicely and is easy to do.
Just reading these comments has me craving, even more, my beef barley soup. I use beef shanks and mixed veggies, but no green beans for me! Tomato paste gives amazing flavor.

No doubt, first a “sauté de lentilles”, then “boeuf bourguignon”…..hours of cooking, fantastic smell in the house.
I would definitely cook my favourite recipe from my Oma called Rouladen. My Oma recently passed away and this was the first and best meal that she taught me to cook, I have such great memories of cooking with my Oma! The recipe is very simple and incredibly delicious! I go to the butcher and get eye of round sliced into long strips and enough smoked bacon for each piece of meat. You will need onion, tomato, Dijon mustard and salt and pepper.
Pat dry meat slices with paper towel, brush mustard over one side of beef slice, add one slice of bacon, add quarter piece of tomato and onion (approximately same size), roll the rouladen from the narrow end folding sides over top and use toothpicks to hold in shape. Once all rouladen is prepared heat grape seed oil or vegetable oil in deep oven pan. Brown meat on all sides. After last turn of meat add one chopped onion to pan and fry for 2-3 minutes. Turn off element and add boiling water to pan to 3/4 height of the rouladen. I’m not sure the significance of the boiling water vs cold water but my Oma always said it was better and it’s never done me wrong doing it this way, I just boil the water in the kettle. Cook rouladen at 400 in the oven for approximately 1 1/2 hours- trust me when I say the aroma will let you know when they are ready also when they start to fall apart when you poke them with a fork! Serve with potatoes and favourite veggie, also just using cornstarch and water to thicken the gravy, a little salt and pepper to taste…perfection! I hope my instructions made sense! Thanks for listening and letting me share my memory of my Oma!❤️
It sounds delicious!!! I too have great fond memories and recipes from my grandmother. Good luck!
This looks delicious! It’s on my recipe list for the week. 🙂

Pot roast would be wonderful !
I would love to win this beautiful dutch oven… The recipes I could make with it..yummm
For starters my mom’s homemade stew with dumpling. my cousins cornbread recipe and a huge pot of chili

I love to make soup and slow cook a pork shoulder roast for pulled pork sandwiches when the family gets together. That Dutch oven would look wonderful in my kitchen!
I would love to try this recipe in a cast iron pot as I’ve never had one. Of course I’d be making my own delicious turkey chili and vegetable soup.
I would make a roast. Low and slow is the way to go!
First a loaf of no knead bread I have been experimenting with and while it is cooling a Chicken Cacciatore recipe I have also been experimenting with to go with it.
I’d love to cook my mom’s jambalaya or chicken/sausage gumbo. Yum! South Louisiana at its best.

I’d love to try my Thai Chicken Curry Soup in this….yummmmyyyyy!
I would like to cook in my own 6-qt Dutch oven.
Oh, my goodness. What wouldn’t I cook in it?! I am a pot-cooker at heart and most of my family’s favorite meals are single pot dishes. I would pour my love into that beauty, making bone broths, curries, chilis, soups- like Kai sai ming, golden chana soup, umami, chicken and wild rice soup and my grandma’s chicken and dumplings, ooh, and roasted or braised meats, like my cilantro lime chicken thighs and my grandfather’s marinated pork dish affectionately dubbed “Pop’s brew”. Wowza. Can’t forget baby! He has a thing for homemade baby foods. I’ve been wishing for a beautiful enamel Dutch oven lately. Something my kids will be able to reminisce about one day, remembering all of the good things that came out of “that old pot” of mom’s…!
Almost forgot about my venison butternut squash stew. There are no words to describe how satisfying and soul warming that dish is!
I love soup so I’d probably be making every kind I can think of!
I would love to have a cast iron pot so I could brown my ingredients for recipes and be able to finish them off in the oven! I don’t like having to dirty extra dishes and this would solve that issue. Plus they look really cool to serve out of. I’ve had one on my wishlist for YEARS 🙂
What wouldn’t I cook in this beautiful Dutch oven? I’d for sure make “Bring out Your Dead” soup. (Play on the Monty Python Holy Grail movie.) Bring out Your Dead soup is made from all the odds and ends in the fridge (left overs and/or misc. veggies). It never tastes the same twice!
I am totally craving ham and split pea soup. But all homemade soups would go into this Dutch oven. It’s still pretty chilly here, so soup, stew, and chowders are the ultimate comfort food.
I would try to make a new GF chili recipe I found the other day! I have missed chili! And, this recipe looks great! I may have to tweak it for my GF sensitive belly and try it!
I would use this to cook traditional Icelandic smoked lamb, a family tradition for Christmas. Of course, routine dishes would be enjoyed as well.
I would love to make make my chipotle Mexican bean soup in my new Dutch oven. It would really enhance all the Mexican flavor and spices with all the beans and colorful vegetables. Thanks
What a great giveaway! If I won this cast iron Dutch oven, I would probably make Moroccan Beef stew first.
I would cook bread first!!! I’ve been wanting one for a long time. I would get so much use out of this. I cook stews, soups etc at least once a week year round.
I’ve never used a Dutch oven but I’d love to expand my recipes with a great new kitchen addition.
This recipe looks delish!! I think this might be the first thing I would cook in the pot!! Thanks for the chance to win!
Oh, man! I would love to cook this very recipe for my family! As well as butternut squash soup. And enchilada casserole. And minestrone–I’ve been meaning to try my own minestrone recipe….
I cook so many great recipes in mine, a few I got from you! 🙂 My mom gave it to me a couple years ago. Would love to try a bread recipe!
I love using a dutch oven for braising corned beef.
I have always wanted a dutch oven! I could make so many different things. I love my crockpot, but a roast in a dutch oven sounds so yummy!…
I love to make sour dough bread and stew!! I only have an old black dutch oven but I would love a new lodge cast iron Dutch oven to cook them in!!
Recipe looks AMAZING! I would love to cook potato soup in this dutch oven! 🙂
I have always wanted one of these. I would like to make a spring lamb and vegetable stew with it….I am so ready for spring how about you?
I would try this recipe and any other one that asks to start on the stove and put in the oven. I never can try them because my cookware can’t go in the oven.
i have a Dutch Oven and I agree – LOOOVE! So versatile! Yet, mine is MUCH smaller and as we are soon to become a family of FIVE the idea of a 6qt version sounds like a much needed addition to our kitchen 🙂
What a great recipe. I love chili. I have been wanting to make Martha Stewart’s Beef Bourguignon recipe. I watched her make it on PBS and it looked delicious.
I love to cook soups in a dutch oven, but I also sometimes use it for frying because the tall sides keep most of the splatters off my stove and counters.
I loved it when my mom cooked in her Dutch oven. I’d love to be able to make her beef pot roast w/veggies or cabbage rolls. They were some of my favorites growing up!
I would make homemade spaghetti sauce with tomatoes fresh from the garden. My daughter would make her favorite beef stew!
I would love to try baking bread in this. I can almost smell it. Yum!!!
Chicken and veggies!
Mmmmmm Texas chili!!!
Soups! All kinds!
Mary Anne Jackson
I always have homemade soup in the house. It’s my favorite way to put things together that are chock full of nutrients that stay in the product after it’s cooked. So, I am sure to get tons of veggies along with little to no meat, depending on what I’m hankering for at the moment. My Dutch oven is not a good one, and has worn out, but I use it anyway because it’s the right size. A porcelain cast iron Dutch oven would be so great for even cooking and easy clean up. Thank you Laura for the chance to win one! I made your chili recipe above 2 days ago and finally believe I’ve found the right chili recipe – now if I can win this beautiful pot I’ll be as happy as a toad in a flower bed!
I have a smaller Dutch oven that I use all the time – it would be awesome to have a bigger one too, as our family grows. I’d use it for curry chicken, homemade mac and cheese, soups and broth, one pot pasta recipes – everything! Thanks for the giveaway!
I would love to cook Pot Roasts, soups, stews, and braised meats in the 6 qt dutch oven!
I would love to cook my stews and soups in a dutch oven!
I love cast iron for cooking! I would want to make my favorite chili vegetable soup. It’s a veggie soup with chili seasoning, loaded with cheese and sour cream, if that is your thing.
As father of 6 there are countless options for what would be cooked in such a well crafted pot, but the first meal would likely be Calico Chili; with it mix of 10 beans and all the ingredients that make a good hearty chili it would be an instant success on my table! Especially, when coupled with my wife’s Gluten-Free Cornbread, freshly chopped Onions, a generous heap of Shredded Cheddar Cheese and a sizable dollop of Sour Cream!
I would make peach cobbler. We have Boy Scouts so a dutch oven would be a huge plus for their scouting actives.
I would love to try making some soup in a Dutch oven.
I have been trying to convince my husband that we need one of these, I would love it to make chilli and to bake sourdough bread in
At age 28, I’ve never owned any cast iron, but I have been looking at the options and I’ve quickly learned that there is much to love about Lodge cast iron! With a 120 year history of excellence in making quality cast iron cookware in the US, it is just frosting on the cake that they are ALSO extremely eco-responsible. I love that they recently took on an Energy Star challenge and exceeded their goals. I look forward to owning a Lodge cast iron Dutch oven someday and cooking all sorts of things in it on a regular basis!
I tried this recipe and loved it — and can only imagine how much more wonderful it would be in Lodge’s cast iron Dutch oven. I also can’t wait to try Martha Stewart’s Wine-Braised Brisket recipe featured in this month’s Martha Stewart Living magazine: http://www.marthastewart.com/1146995/wine-braised-brisket. The white wine sounds like a great change in the recipe. There are so many possibilities that I look forward to exploring someday soon.
Wow, the recipe was a winner already!? Awesome!!
I would love to cook ham and bean soup in this!
I don’t have a Dutch oven so I would love to win this one!
Yum! Would love to try this in a new dutchie! 🙂
I love cooking with cast iron. For my anniversary, I asked my husband for lodge cast iron cookware. The one thing I lack is a Dutch oven. If I had one, I would love to try making the beef stew that was made in the movie”Julia and Julie”, amongst other things!
I’d like to bake cornbread in it!
Beef bourguignon!!! Cast iron is the best.
I have used cast iron a lot over the years and love it. I was introduced to dutch ovens when I worked as a river guide but would love this beautiful blue one for my kitchen!
I am a recipe junkie; I try new recipes all the time. Many times the recipes call for browning/ sautéing & then finishing off in the same pan in the oven. I don’t have a Dutch oven so I can’t do that!!! But I would love to.
I’m learning to bake with ancient Einkorn wheat and the Dutch Oven is the perfect tool for making a perfect rustic boule!
I love cooking chicken chili, stew, and soups!
Almost No knead bread!
Would love a dutch oven. Some of the first things I would like to make are breads – a rustic loaf, cornbread and even try a pot of chhicken and dumplings.
this chili would be one of the recipes I would love to try in that pretty pot 🙂
I love cast iron!! Would be as happy as Julia Child in France if I were to win this 🙂
I’ve never had a dutch oven before so I would probably start with some dessert recipes. I saw a lovely Strawberry Upside Down Cake recipe I’d like to try.
Laura, I love your recipes. I only use cast iron pans. I love them. I even use them for baking bread. Can’t beat cast iron pans. I’ve been using them ever since I started cooking at home. My mother used cast iron pans so I guess I picked up the habit from her. An aunt gave me a couple of small fry pans. They come in handy for small things like frying an egg or hamburger. Thanks again for a great site. I like to make soup and that pot would be perfect.
Love this recipe. Bookmarking now to make it later!
What an exciting give-away! I would love to win this for my family ,and the first thing I’d cook is some veggie chili! Even if it’s 70 degrees in Ohio
It’s that time of year – Shepherd Pie!
Homemade spaghetti sauce!!
I would love to make a beef stew that my family loves!
I would love a dutch oven because the possibilities are endless! From French onion soup to baked beans, marinara sauce, teriyaki chicken, jam, and so much more. My family would love it!!!!!
I would love to be able to cook in a 6 qt cast iron dutch oven, in any color, I firmly believe that cast iron cookware is far healthier for you, and creates nicer meals. I love cast iron
I didn’t grow up in a house where my mom cooked, so I’m just now learning about investment pieces for my kitchen. I would LOVE to win my first Dutch oven!
I would love a dutch oven because the possibilities are endless!!! From French onion soup (my favorite) to pasta sauce, jams, baked beans and so much more!!!
I would love the chance to make a pot roast in one of these!
Vegan Curry Chickpeas
I have a 12 inch enameled cast iron pan. I love how it holds temperatures so well, but I don’t love how heavy it is. But, a 6 quart pot would get lots of use here, we Cook often for more than our family of 6! Lots of beef stew, chili, and other soups. But, I’d love to be able to sear a pot roast and throw the pot into the oven to finish, so that would be the first thing I’d try!
I would love to win this dutch oven!! I love using cast iron to cook and have been wanting an enamaled cast iron dutch oven for a long time. It would be great for beef roast slow cooked, soups, chili’s, anything really! I like to cook in large amounts for my hungry teen agers so this would be helpful! I would also like to try the chili recipe above! It looks delicious!
This recipe sounds so yummy! I would love to have a cast iron Dutch oven. I have come across so many recipes that I was unable to make because I didn’t have the proper cookware. I would use this often to cook those pinned meals for my family. 🙂
So many recipes say to use cookware that goes from stove to oven, but most doesn’t. This is a great pot to do that. I love rustic recipes with whole chickens or roasts with vegetables and herbs and stews that cook for a long time to marry all the flavors together.
Pot roast for sure!
I have wanted a real cast iron dutch oven for years! Unfortunately I try to buy big ticket items used instead of new and no one seems to want to part with theirs…go figure! The first thing I would make if I win, would be Julia Child’s Beef Bourguignon!!
Third time at trying to post here, but post never shows! Would love a pot like this for chili and soup.
I would love the pot to cook pasta sauce, stew, chili, soup….my mouth waters just thinking of it.
I would use it to make Mac & Cheese – I never buy the boxed stuff and my kids love eating it for lunch!! I make at least a lb a week! Love your recipes – can’t wait to try this one!
I would love to win this Dutch oven! The first thing I’d cook in it would definitely be chili – I LOVE chili! And your recipe above sounds fabulous!
I love your blog, even though I am not a mom. I make your recipes for my friends who are moms and as my own packed lunches. Thank you.
I actually don’t have a dutch oven yet. I would love this one! It looks awesome 🙂
I think the bigger question is what couldn’t I cook in this dutch oven! Roast chicken, stews, soups, bone broth, mashed potatoes, tomato sauce, chili, delicious loaves of artisan bread, and more and more and more!
Lodge really is one of the very best companies out there making cast iron cookware. Other companies with famous chef names attached to them charge a premium, but the quality just isn’t the same. Lodge is less expensive than the rest and the quality is far superior. All of my fry pans are Lodge (except my treasured Griswold and Wagner Ware skillets), cast right here in the US. I’ve not used their enameled cookware, but I am sure it is a fantastic choice.
I would love to make Bean Soup in the dutch oven!
I would try this recipe! Never having owned a Dutch oven, I think this would be a great start.
Braised short ribs
Endless possibilities with a Dutch oven, I gave up our regular cast iron when we moved and now have a glass top stove. I’ve been looking at enamel cast iron. Would love to do bread baking and stews.
Its my most used pan in the house – seriously! Love love love it. I like to cook all sorts of things – spaghetti Bolognese, soups, stews, roasts, lamb shanks, caramels, nougat. You name it, I cook it in there.
I would cook a large pot of my favorite comfort food…chicken and dumplings!!!
would love to make soups and maybe even try to make pizza using the dutch oven
I would a Dutch oven! I never owned one but always wished I had one. I would live to make soups, sauces and a family favorite…chili . As a family of 6 a Dutch oven would come in super handy!
I’d love to make a roast chicken in this pan!
I would make some awesome fried chicken!
I’ve really want to try making my own stock. Chili is aways good and that meal looks delicious.
This looks yummy, but I think my favorite would have to be the one-pot chicken, broccoli teriyaki dish I like to make!
I would love one to cook stew in and loaded baked potato soup (one of our favorites). Thanks for the giveaway.
I would love to win this. Have had on my Christmas list for years. I would use it to make soup.
Drool… I have been wanting one of these Dutch Ovens for a long time. I would love to cook homemade spaghetti sauce, veggie-beef soup (love soup), and beef tips and gravy in this beautiful Dutch Oven!!!
Ooooh, I would love to make my chili and potato soup recipes in one of these!
I would love to make this recipe in my dutch oven!
I don’t have a nice Dutch Oven, because I haven’t had the money to invest in a nice one. However, I love to cook homemade spaghetti sauce and veggie beef soup (love soup) in my large stock pot. It’d be awesome to win the Dutch Oven so I could use it instead!
I want to cook EVERYTHING in this dutch oven pot. 🙂
A Dutch Oven is the one kitchen item I am missing. I would love love love to make roasted lamb and other soups in it. I know it is the one pot wonder!
This chili, short ribs and a nice heart bolognese sauce.
apple pie and pizza!
I would make soups and braised meats.
I would cook a Bolognese sauce, or maybe braise some short ribs, in that beautiful Dutch oven! Two comforting meals that would be perfect to share with my brother on his next visit 🙂 We live in different states and we both love to cook. We are constantly sending each other pix of our latest kitchen successes (…and failures).
There is so much I could do if I had a Dutch oven, Hungarian saurkraut, arroz con gandules, stew, spiced beef, I could go on
I need a Dutch oven soooo bad! I want to try this recipe and others but have such a difficult time without one.
Mmmmm! Looks delicious!
Oh my! What wouldn’t I make! Spaghetti sauce, chili, soups! I have just started using cast iron and I love it!
Minestrone soup and no-knead bread
I’d love a cast iron Dutch oven for baking bread! Nothing better than an overnight bread recipe baked fresh in a dutch oven in the morning! Of course, there’d be lots of soups, stews and roasted chicken or beef meals as well!
This looks like a great recipe to try! My husband has fond memories of cooking with a Dutch oven as a kid in the Boy Scouts. We currently do not own one and I would love to recreate some of his childhood recipes.
I already have two smaller dutch ovens and I love love them! I would use a larger one to make stews in, I love making beef and chicken stews and putting biscuits on the top. the dutch oven is so great because you can use it on the stove and in the oven and it looks so nice on the table! I don’t have to transfer what I’m making so it is in a pretty dish!
That looks so good ! Definitely will try and would love to win
Would love to have a dutch oven to make chili. My boyfriend loves chili and I’d love making him a great one.
I would love this pot for cooking beans, among many other things!
You had me at Bolognese! I am a huge fan and need to learn to make a GOOD Bolognese myself. Bolongnese and short rib!
I would love a dutch oven! I see so many recipes that say cook in dutch oven so I haven’t tried them yet. Just the thought of being able to load it up any basically let it work sounds to good!
I would use the Lodge Dutch oven to try your recipes plus other new recipes I routinely try. Lodge is my favorite too, and this would be a great addition to my kitchen equipment! Thanks for your site and emails!
Would love to win this pot and if I do, I would of course make this recipe in it first
I can think of a lot of yummy things to make in a dutch oven; but the first one that comes to mind is my father’s wonderful cassoulet. One of my favorite dishes that he makes.
I’d love to try a roast in a Dutch oven..I ask for one every Christmas but have yet to get one lol!
Pot roast. I’ve never made pot roast on the stove (only slow cooker). Thanks!
I would make a big batch of french onion soup OR a homemade loaf of crusty dutch oven bread.
Would love a dutch oven to cook chili, soups and stews to start – the possibilities are endless!
thanks for the opportunity to win this beautiful cast iron dutch oven! i would cook a HUGE batch of homemade spaghetti sauce (for freezer portions), best when it simmers for hours.
I would make a big pot of my grandmother’s ham and white beans…and of course a batch of her skillet cornbread to go with it!
I will make this chili recipe!
I grew up with my grandmom & mom cooking in cast iron skillet & I ‘inherited’ several from grandmom, which I truly treasure. However I’ve never had opportunity to use a dutch oven but it sounds terrific. I would love to be able to use this with my soups, sauces and casseroles for our growing family. Thanks for sharing the chili recipe; I’ll have to give it a try.
I have never had a dutch oven or cast iron pot. It was imbedded in my head that it was not good for your health to cook in these. I have always wanted to try one, since I see so many recipes that call for one. I would love to learn how to use it and be able to make great meals for my boys. Specially to learn to make homemade bread. Learn how to make Pernil and chicken. Try many other wonderful recipes that I have seen.
Thank you for the great tips and recipes.
A delicious pot roast!
I’d love to be able to make stews and chili in this pot. Plus I think it would be a versatile piece to have in my kitchen. Thanks for the opportunity to win! This recipe looks great!
I would use my Dutch oven to cook goulash, roasts and chili.
Stews are my favorite thing to cook in a dutch oven, but I’m thinking about experimenting with bread.
This Dutch oven would be perfect for chicken tortilla soup!
Love the pot! I cook dried beans in the oven, after an overnight soak I cover the beans with water and bake at 250 deg F covered for 45 minutes to 3 hours depending on the bean, they come out so tender! Better and easier than on the stovetop
My vegetarian chocolate walnut bean chili. Sounds gross but it is delish!
I have an old cast iron pot with very little enamel left that is my go to pot for many meals….soups, chili, and I’ve even tried artisan bread in it (with great results). A new pot would be a blessing; I’d probably make some type of soup for a first recipe.
I have never cooked in a Dutch oven, but my mother used to make the most tender pot roast and veggies in hers. I would perhaps try her recipe first. 🙂
I’d make pot roast. I’ve never made it before and I’ve always wanted to try my hand at it.
I cook pretty much everything in my dutch oven, it would probably love a friend so it can get a break! My husband’s favorite meal right now is chili so this recipe is sure to please, thank you for sharing Laura!
I love cooking in a dutch oven because my soups don’t scorch on the bottom.
I’d like to make miners chicken – I had it once at a cookout, out of a Dutch oven and it was delicious!
Miner’s chicken? Do you have a recipe for this? I’m intrigued!
My husband’s favorite meal is chili and cornbread, I bet I could make some fantastic chili in a new Dutch oven!! Definitely putting Laura’s chicken chili recipe on our menu this week! Looks delicious!!
Stews and chili.
I work late a lot, so one pot meals are a great way to get dinner on the table fast. I would of course cook a variety of dishes in this dutch oven, but first my favorite vegetable curry. Thanks for the chili recipe, look forward to seeing how it fares with the kidos!
Recipe looks great. I could use Dutch oven for that, Irish stew, and maybe ‘baking’ on my gas grill outside during hot summer months.
I feel like every family in New England needs this pot. Sadly, I do not have one. 🙁 If I were gifted with one, I would cook bread. Lots and lots of bread!!
I’d love to cook my beef stew with red wine, onions, mushrooms and homemade beef bone stock in this pot!
Oh, I’d cook everything! Of course the classic roast… bone in chicken thighs, short ribs, and my favorite: chili.
I’ve never had dutch oven!
Oh I would make just about everything in it!! One thing I would love to try though is sourdough bread baked in a Dutch oven, I’ve seen lots of great things about it!
I would make a huge pot of Gumbo. .my family’s favorite
I have never owned a Dutch oven but have always wanted one. I would make a big ole pot of chili. I would also like to make Zuppa Toscana. Or beef stew. Mmmm. Thanks for the chance!
I’m a vegetarian but that doesn’t mean I would use it any less – actually I would probably use it more! Soups and stews as well as one pot fast meals would be cooked in that beautiful pot (my favorite color by the way!)
Would love to try your chili recipe…. Yum! Would Love to win the Dutch oven!
I would like to try bread!
Lov this recipe. Definitely going to have to put it on my meal plan! I would love to win the Dutch oven. I have always wanted one. It would get lots of use!!
I would try my chili if I won it
Your recipes look fantastic! I need new cookware so badly and would love to win this! Thank you for the chance!
I do not own a Dutch oven yet and would love to have one. We have a family of 6 total and cooking larger meals is a must at our house. Leftovers are a wonderful thing!!! I think the possibilities could be endless with a Dutch oven. One of our favorites is Chili. I would love to try your recipe and find more new ones to try! I am constantly trying new things for the family and this would be wonderful to use for all the new recipes I find!
I would cook chili!
If I had a Dutch oven, I would definitely make this chili recipe in it. A Dutch oven is one of the things I’ve never had, but have wanted for a while. So many recipes can be made so much easier in a Dutch oven than without–and having to use multiple pots/pans. I would also make other soups and stews; roasts; my Italian grandmother’s amazing spaghetti sauce and so many more things. Thanks for the giveaway!
We have an old cast iron skillet that my husbands grandmother left us, she passed away a few years ago at 104! I would love to add a Lodge Dutch oven as a pass down piece of our families food heritage. With five kids and their friends dinner in one pot would be so much easier than dinner in two or three. Soups, stews, curry’s, chili’s the list of possibilities seems endless!
I would make many things, especially beef bourguignon!
Love Some Baked Ziti
I would love to make some homemade no-knead artisan bread in the dutch oven!
I love trying new recipes. My family lives chili so I am always looking for new ideas. I would make one of my favorite comfort foods in this pot…beef stew.
I would make chicken stew to pour over biscuits!
SherI Lyn Mix
Yum! I would braise a brisquet…red wine, onions, carrots, mushrooms. I can smell it now!
This is incredible! I have always wanted one of these! I would love to start with the recipe you have here!
I have never used anything like this to cook with so I would probably start with the chilli recipe.
We love to try different chili’s and rice dishes – they would be do pretty in this dutch oven!
Chili, chili, and more chili. Love chili!
So many things…..chili, pot roast, roasted veggie pasta sauce, and cherry cobbler, just to get started!
I love my cast iron skillets so much, they stay on my stovetop all the time. If I had a dutch oven I would use it for lots of things, probably soup would be the most popular.
There are so many German recipes
I would want to try. Top of the list would be lamb stew and Dutch Oven bread! Thanks for the chance!!
The recipe looks really yummy. Will be trying it this week while both kids are home from college.
Would LOVE to win the pot. Nice addition to my kitchen.
I’ve never cooked with one of these, but if I won one I would make soups, stews, chilis, curries… you name it!
Hmmm I would love to try to cook everything I’ve heard here – gumbos, chili, pot roast – I would definitely learn how to use it. I don’t own any cast iron cookware but have heard wonderful things about it.
I have never had a Dutch Oven, but have always wanted one! I would love to make a vegetable beef soup (an old family recipe) in a Dutch Oven! Plus try tons of other recipes I have found!
I have wanted a Dutch oven since I started cooking. My grandmother had a lodge that was then passed down to my mother and then my sister so I’ve been wanting one of my own. A recipe I remember my grandmother making is a hearty beef stew. One of my favorites that I’ve tried in the crockpot but never comes out as good as my grandmothers cooked in her Dutch oven. It seems a lot of recipes I find on the Internet I want to try require a Dutch oven so there are plenty more I would love to try as well.
Hmm…there’s so many lovely things i would use it for but on eof my long term favourites would have to be a lamb hot pot. Beautiful 🙂
Getting a 6 qt dutch oven would be great. I had one that disappeared in one of our moves, and have been using a 4 qt instead. Amazing at what a difference that makes.
Thank you for all the recipes and other bits of info you share, they are helpful to families of all ages and sizes.
Well, with the Maple Sugaring Season which just started here in Quebec and Easter just around the corner, The first two recipes I would be making in the Dutch over is a Braised leg of lamb with vegetables and Maple Syrup and Maple Syrup Grand-Peres (Dumplings), a traditional dessert of the sugaring season.
I wish I could try a stuffed cabage (Sauerkraut)
With a Dutch oven I’d start by making my mother’s pot roast followed by lots of soups and chili’s

I would love to make curry in a Dutch oven! Soups, chili, gumbo, roasts, stews….yum!!!!
I would love to make some of the same recipes my mom made in her dutch oven when i was a kid, especially her pork loin!
What’s not fun to cook in a Dutch oven? Mac and cheese, veggie chili, chicken soup, roast, etc etc! What a fun giveaway! Thank you!
Oh my, there are so many dishes I could prepare with a Dutch oven!! But let’s say that short ribs and artisan bread would be the first two on my list, yummy!
I’d love it to make ratatouille in the oven on a cold day!
So many choices….maybe some Texas Stew or some Spaghetti sauce or some yummy mac and cheese!!
Awesome idea. I love meaty chili and I would use the dutch oven to make a ton for my big family.
I would like to try masala lamb l think it will be very tender
I wish i win
I’ve always cooked soups of course, in my Dutch oven. But my favorite thing to cook is a roast with all the fixin’s! Onions, mushrooms, carrots and potatoes…! Beef or pork, doesn’t matter, my family loves both!
I would make chili, kurbissuppe and spargelsuppe! I would love to add the Dutch oven to my kitchen! I have been wanting to add it for awhile now!
I am going to guess that I’m the only poster who is hoping to make a meaty cholent. Yum!
I would like to make shepherd’s pie in this Dutch oven! Thank you for the giveaway!
Without a doubt Green Chili! This is a recipe passed down through my husband’s family by mouth. I was fortunate enough to have his mother show me how to make it before she passed away 12 years ago and I’m supposedly getting close to perfecting it per my husband & father in law! It’d be great to be able to make a huge pot for the whole family!
I’d love to cook spaghetti sauce since I can’t make that in my non enameled cast iron. I’d also love to sear and braise a roast, make chili, tacos…..so many options. Plus it’s so gorgeous, I’d leave it out on the stove to admire it!
Soup, chili, gumbo and an occasional whole chicken.
I would try this recipe but I would have to add some beans!!
I would bake rustice no knead bread, cook chili, pot au feu, huge veggie soups, and so many things. I have a dutch oven but got stolen during a move. Really miss it.
I have always wanted a Dutch oven but never gotten one yet … My family loves pot roast, soups and chili, even a delicious curry would be good in a Dutch oven! Can’t wait to try this chili recipe sounds delicious.
Great recipe. I would make my mom’s chili & taco soup – two of our family favorites if we were to win the giveaway.
Soups and bread
Would lovea dutch oven. The blue would go beautifully in my kitchen. The first thing I’d make with it would a a whole, organic chicken.
I loved my blue enameled LODGE cast iron Dutch oven for about 5 years. We used it weekly. UNTIL I had it tested for lead—it tested POSITIVE. Yes, the WHITE INSIDE ENAMEL HAS LEAD IN IT. I haven’t been able to bring myself to use it since. Don’t take my word for it—get yours tested with an XRF machine. Any amount of lead is not safe! Especially for families with children. Completely unacceptable. For this reason, I do not believe you should endorse LODGE.
We don’t have a Dutch oven but I would love to make some creamy chicken and rice soup that I usually make in my crockpot.
I already cook everything in cast iron! My favorite “pot & pan” is one of my iron skillets! I have several sizes of skillets but I don’t have a Dutch oven. I would cook chili for sure, and my family’s favorite-cheesiest potato soup.
I’d love to make that Paleo White Chicken and Veggie Chili recipe you just posted in a new Dutch oven I had won! That would be so much fun!
Short Ribs! Although with 4 kids a giant batch of meat sauce would be more practical.
I would make Guinness Beef.
I would love to be able to use the Dutch oven to cook soups, stews, and roasts.
If I had a dutch oven I would love to make all kinds of delicious stews including a delicious caldo de res or menudo.
That Dutch oven would be perfect for my artisan bread!!! 🙂
We have a large family so I use my Dutch oven for almost everything. This recipe looks so yummy, I’ll definitely have to try it out.
i love to make soup and chili in the dutch oven
Have been wanting one of these pans for chili and stews.
I would love to have this Dutch oven to make my chili and pot roasts in and to try some of your recipes!
I’ve never made bread in a Dutch oven before, I’m very intrigued! I love making soups and stews and would love to have a Dutch oven to make them in. I love to boil a whole chicken and do this often. It makes delicious stock as well as yummy meat for several dishes.
I would love to make this chili or any soup or roasted chicken in a Dutch oven.
I’d be making Irish Guiness Beef Stew this week. Chili, Chicken Tortilla Soup, or Chicken and Cheesy Rice any other day. Thank you for the opportunity to win!
If I had a Lodge Dutch Oven, I’d braise some of the fabulous pork we just got from our CSA! Love using our Lodge skillets, too.
I’d love to cook chili in this!!!
This recipe looks amazing! I can’t wait to try it! I love my Lodge cast iron skillet and would love a dutch oven. I would make french onion soup!
I’ve been drooling over recipes for baking bread in a dutch oven, so I’d love to win this one to try them out. This chicken chili sounds really good, too! Being a Texan, red chili is my favorite but there are so many variations on the theme it would be great to try a bunch of them in this lovely pot.
Roast! Haven’t been able to make a good one yet, so maybe this would do the trick!
I have wanted one of these for a while. I would cooks lots of soups, stews, and one pot dishes in this beautiful dish!
I would make the White Chili recipe in this post.
In the late fall/winter/early spring, I cook with a wood cook stove and absolutely LOVE it. I really does make the food taste better. It dates back to the late 1800’s. It has a warming oven, a baking oven, a water reservoir that heats water for dishes and adding humidity to the air (we live in New Mexico).
The only cookware that can withstand this kind of heat is cast iron. In the oven, the heat comes from the top (not the bottom like regular electric/propane stoves). I learned quickly how to cover the food properly and what kind of lid to use so the handle doesn’t melt. I have also learned to use cast iron trivets to slow the cooking of some foods while other foods need hotter temps.
Which leads me to cooking multiple foods at one time and the reason I would LOVE a 6 quart dutch oven. We are a family of 5 so I’m all about batch cooking.
What would I cook in this dutch oven? Your chili recipe, some beans and chicos, slow simmer bone broth or dutch apple pie!
Favorite meal in a dutch oven? Stews! But lately I’ve been wanting to try baked bread in one.
I’ve wanted a Dutch Oven for such a long time now. Would absolutely make your chicken chili recipe as we have eliminated red meat in our family so I’m always on the hunt for new chicken recipes!! Appreciate the opportunity to try for this! Thanks!!
I would love to cook the new Paleo recipes that I’m learning how to make for my three small children, starting with chili! I’m widowed and my late husband was the chef. I’m proud of the cooking skills I’ve gained over the past two years and could definitely put this lovely Dutch oven to use.
I’d try THIS recipe! I love making chili but I’ve never tried one like this! Looks amazing!!
This recipe sounds amazing! I will try it out this week. It would be amazing to have my own 6-qt Dutch Oven to make it in. I would like one to make my pork green chili, chicken tortilla soup, chicken noodle soup, and so many more recipes in.
Thanks for all your great recipes and tips!
Pot roast! Have seen many one pot recipies that pop in the oven that I would love to try!
I don’t have a Dutch oven and I just learned that it can make desserts too!! So I’m not only excited to make this dish, meat balls, fettuccini Alfredo etc but also so looking forward to try to make cheesecake!
I wanna win!!!!!
I have heard wonderful things about cooking bread in Dutch ovens! I am a bread fanatic and would love the chance to try it in my very own Dutch oven 😉
I’d love to make brocolli cheese soup in a Dutch oven! I’ve tried it every other way!
Thanks for this recipe, I will try this for sure! I am a lover of all the comfort foods, soups..stews..chilli. I have always wanted a dutch oven for my husband and I. I like comfort foods with lots of vegetables and he loves lots of meat so we compromise with hearty stews, chilis, and soups. The first thing I would make in this is my favorite zucchini chicken chili! I love your emails and always look forward to your recipes. Thanks!!
If I win the dutch oven, I would use it to make stews and chilis. My favourite comfort foods.
I have been wanting a Dutch oven for as long as I can remember, I want to cook everything in it!
I’d love to make your chicken chili recipe and brown some beef and make a delicious stew!
I would LOVE a dutch oven. There are so many options, but I’d start with artisan bread and then quickly follow it with stews, chilis, and soups. Thanks for all you do.
My husband and I were *just* telling friends we wanted a cast iron Dutch oven!!!! We love a good comforting pot roast but I’m sure we’d cook a slew of things in there!!! Thanks for the opportunity!!
My tiny family of 3 has almost every food intolerance most people can think of (wheat, corn, dairy, peanut, soy, egg, pea, almonds and citrus), so I cook almost all of our meals from scratch to accommodate everyone’s needs and cook only one meal. This recipe doesn’t need modifying and looks delicious so it would be one of the first I try if I had a Dutch oven, followed by a big batch of spaghetti sauce then my taco meat sauce!
I’d like to try your recipe and would love to brown some beef and make a delicious stew!
One of the first things that I’d cook in that pot is chicken noodle Soup!
I have always wanted one of these. But the first thing I’d cook in it would fire roasted tortilla soup! It’s a regular dish in our family of 5 and it would be even better in a cast iron Dutch oven!!!!
This recipe looks fantastic! I would love to prepare it in a dutch oven. Thanks for sharing such delicious ideas.
I would love to win this! I make lots of soups, would love to try a dutch oven bread and it would help a lot with canning! Thanks for your great recipes and the work you put into your blog.
Oh, my gosh! What WOULDN’T I prepare in this!? We have five children (turning 2 – twins! – 4, 6, and 8 this year) and are preparing for our first big move in May. Any opportunity to save time and make a delicious (and allergy-friendly) meal is a welcomed one!
I would love to win this! I would cook everything in this! Soups, stews, roasts, fried chicken, anything! I don’t have one and have been wanting one for quite a while 🙂
I would love to try homemade tomato sauce, one pot lasagna, easy Parmesan risotto and applesauce. These would be new recipes as well as old ones such as soups and beef stew.
The chicken chili recipe sounds so good. Would love to cook in this cast iron dutch oven. Thanks
Now I’ve got a hankering for chili, so that’s what I would make in a new Dutch oven, but more traditional, with beef, tomatoes, and beans 🙂
I have been married 31 years and never owned one. I would cook many things from my mom’s spaghetti sauce, to chili, soup, stew, roasts, shrimp creole, and many more recipes! And I love the color! Perfect in my yellow and blue kitchen!
Would really like to cook coq co vin or beef bourguignon.
I would make sourdough bread.
I love my cast iron too! I don’t have one of the enameled Dutch ovens but I know I would use it! Thanks for the opportunity!
I’ve never had a dutch oven but have always wanted one. I would make beef stew throughout the winter and soups and chili the rest of the year.
Hi I would love the Dutch Oven to cook many recipes my grandmother used to make, such as Sunday pot roasts, chili, and beef stew (and of course some of your dishes) . I can still picture her old Dutch oven and would love for my little boys to enjoy those dishes too. Thank you for all your recipes!!!!
I have a dutch oven, but would love to own a cast iron one. I use my for soups, but my favorite use is making artisan bread. It makes the best loaf with chewy crust and soft insides!
A Dutch oven has been on my wish list. Would love to do roast a chicken in one.
This looks wonderful! I would love a Dutch oven like this. I have been married 31 years and have never owned one. There are so many things I would cook in it, from my mom’s spaghetti sauce recipe to chili, soups, a roast, stews, shrimp Creole, and many more. And I love that blue color! Perfect in my blue and yellow kitchen!
Oh, so many wonderful things I would make in that pot– like pork shoulder ragu and sopa ranchera!
So funny! I hadn’t seen your recipe before I answered, “Chili or Chicken”! Would LOVE to win this!
I already have the ingredients. Cant wait to try for tomorrows supper- Looks Amazing!
Would love to hear how you enjoy it Nancy!
I just made a lentil sausage stew in my enameled dutch oven today! sadly it now has a chip in the enamel 🙁
Is it wrong that I want to take it camping with me and the fam?!? I’ve never had one, but always see recipes that call for it as I’m preparing meals for our camping trips. I would definitely make baked apples or Apple bread in it..
I would love this pot! I have had it on my wishlist forever! I am into chili right now so that is what I would most likely cook right off the bat.
i love the color of this Dutch oven! I would definitely use it to make beef stew.
I love to cook bread bread bread in my cast iron pot! It’s a success every time!
My go to Dutch oven recipe is from a wedding gift cookbook for chicken cacciatore. I’ve made it for my friends as a new mom meal many times as it’s always delicious! Artichokes and sherry make the recipe (and of course the moisture capturing effects of the Dutch oven!).
I would definently cook a pot roast first, followed by braised cabbage. I love how flexable dutch ovens are, one pot cooking and beautiful to serve out of! That blue one is so pretty! Thank you for sharing so many recipes and tips, your a lifesaver <3
I´d love to try a bread recipe, as a good Spaniard I love bread 😀
I have always wanted to do one of those deep braising meat recipes that requires (or at least a suggestion to use). I would love to add this pot to my collection!
P.s. your chili looks amazing may have to try it!
I would really like a new dutch oven. I would make delicious stews, chili, pot roast, and just about everything !
I’ve never had a dutch oven, but would love to! I would start using it with this chili recipe. Looks so yummy!
Beef stew, apple sauce, tomato sauce, broccoli cheese soup, bread and much more!!!
I’d cook mainly soups, lentil and squash are favorites around here…..I’d probably also use it to start my homemade yogurt…….
I would cook beautiful roasts in this Dutch oven.
I would love to cook bison stew.
Hi! I have seen so many recipes that use a Dutch oven (including the one above!).I can’t try them because I don’t own a Dutch oven. I would love to have one to cook artisan breads, soups, stews, chilis, braised meats and more!
I would love the dutch oven to cook all my roasts, soups and stews during the long Wisconsin winters. Thank you!
I would love to win a dutch oven!! I have been eyeing one from TJ Maxx/Marshalls for long time now but the price just gave me sticker shock even at these stores. I would love to make a Trinidad stewed chicken for my family (3 boys)!! I have to use 2 separate pots now to cook the chicken since they eat at least 2lbs of chicken when I cook it. Would definitely make my life much easier.
I love this pot! I’d first make a veggie white bean stew with dumplings. and then a whole lt more!
Would love to try chicken-in-a-pot in that beautiful Dutch oven!
Grandpa’s Beef Stew!
Among dozens of other things, I’d like to cook a classic pot roast in a Dutch oven.
Who doesn’t want a beautiful cast iron Dutch oven to cook in 🙂 I’d be thrilled to win it! This sounds like a wonderful, filling recipe. Can’t wait to try it.
I would love to try this recipe in a dutch oven! Also, I have seen different recipes online of what you can do with one, it is quite amazing to see what you can do with it!
I would sear a roast in the Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven then add onions, potatoes and carrots then call the family to savor together.
I would love to make a pot roast for a nice family dinner on Sunday. My grandma used to have us over every Sunday and I can still remember the smell of her pot roast cooking away in her Dutch oven. My Aunt got her cast iron skillets and my Mom got the Dutch oven. I hope to one day be able to hand down a piece of our familys kitchen history to my kids.
This looks awesome!
I’d make “normal” chili.
Though I also want to try this chicken veggie chili you’ve posted.
I would love to try braised ox tail! I’ve seen it cooked in the Dutch oven but I’ve never had the opportunity to try it.
I have several pieces of enamel cast iron and love them!
I would like to cook gumbo, chili, or lentil stew in cast iron. Hearing that people threw out their cast iron makes my heart hurt. Katrina was how I ended up with my 16 inch cast iron skillet. A local hardware store was throwing it out after the roof leaked water on their cast iron display. It was covered in rust. My husband grinded the rust off and I reseasoned it. I think I use it daily with our family of five.
So sad indeed! Most people don’t know that they could have done what your husband did. What a gift!! Good luck!
Peach Blackberry camp cake
I love baking bread in Dutch ovens. But I think I would use this one for some really yummy stews ☺️
I love making Sweet Potato Shepard’s pie in my dutch over 🙂

White bean and chicken chili by Giada
I would make chili or roasted corn chowder, I love chili and wish my 5 year old would eat it, alas he avoids anything with a sauce incase I am trying to poison! One of these days, I hope he will enjoy the chili or chowder! Thanks
BREAD! BREAD! BREAD!!!!
I would first fix stew. The possibilities are endless though. I would have a hard time trying to decide what to cook in it next. Pot roast, chicken and dumplings, Salisbury steak…..
I’ve been eyeballing a good Dutch oven for a long time! So many yummy things to make in one, it’s hard to choose, but probably the first thing I’d make is a bolognese. It would definitely see more than one loaf of bread, too!
hello! I love your blog. I would love to win this dutch oven to be able to cook hearty meals for my 3 growing boys. I have been wanting to make braised beef short ribs and a pan such as this would work beautifully.
Thank you for working hard to bring us healthy and delicious recipes.
Suzanne Arrison 🙂
I would definitely make lentil soup!
I would love to make some gluten free homemade chicken and dumplings in that Dutch oven for my daughter who has celiacs.
Love your chili recipe includes zucchini. I’ve been lusting after my mom’s Dutch oven since she received it at Christmas. It’s so useful!
I have just recently discovered the wonders of cooking a big pot of goodness and using it during the week…I am currently limited to what I can cook in a crock pot because I don’t own a Dutch oven….but I have come across numerous recipes that use one. The first thing I would cook is my mom’s chili and then after that, the possibilities are endless. Thanks for the opportunity!
My family loves all kinds of soups, stews, and chilis. I don’t own a Dutch oven now, but it sound perfect to handle these types of meals.
I would love to make my Nanny’s famous beef and veggie soup in this beautiful pot! It would be just perfect!

I would love to do a tagine
Dying for one of these and make my first attempt at a coq au vin! Thanks for the giveaway!!!
I would use this pot for soups, stews, and sauces and many other recipes. I would love this pot because the coating on mine is coming off and I am in need of a new one!
This recipe looks delicious! I also have a traditional “quick” chili that would love to cook in a Lodge cast iron dutch oven. Thank you for all of the great recipes!
I would make a big pot of black bean soup….my family loves it!
I have a little Dutch oven that I got when my husband and I were newlyweds. It was great for stews, sauces, and soups that needed to simmer for hours. We found that cooking in the Dutch oven drew out the flavors of the food in ways that a crock pot just does not! Now that we have 4 kids, our little Dutch oven is not big enough for a meal for our whole family, so I hardly ever use it. It would be lovely to be able to make Dutch oven meals again for my whole family to enjoy!
I worked at a museum for farming and agriculture. And when school tours came, we would make gingerbread in a Dutch oven over a fire. The gingerbread is amazing when cooked in a Dutch oven! So, that’s what I would make…gingerbread.
Wow! I’d love a recipe!!
I would love a Dutch oven! Thanks for the recipe. I hope I win so I can try this out. Would love to do some Mexican stuff and chilies. Thanks for the contest.
I love the concept and execution of slow cooking in a Dutch Oven. An ideal way to cook soups, stews and hearty meats. For busy life styles it is a time saver and delicious to boot!! Chicken chili is a staple in our house.
A delicious chicken and rice biryani would cook so nicely in a Dutch oven!
I would use a dutch oven like this to cook soups and chili Verde! Yummers!
Steak and rice and gravy!
A big, juicy beef roast would cook up beautifully in that!
I would try out my pinto beans in that dutch oven. I also would love to give my favorite chili a try!
Sirloin tip roast
What would I cook in a new Dutch Oven????? I’m a Scouter with a Life Scout and a Star Scout for sons. We love brownies, fruit dump cakes, dutch oven pizzas, stews, mountain man…..I can’t just name one thing, we love Dutch Ovens for cooking!
Just today I made a pineapple upside down cake and was wishing I had a Dutch oven to cook it in. Ended up making it in glass, but t always better in a Dutch oven. I need one bad. I love your site. Great recipes. Thank you
I would love to make my chicken & dumplings recipe in a Dutch oven. I actually talk about that at my website/blog.
We love stews and soups around this house, so obviously I will cook some of them in the Lodge Dutch oven 🙂
I’d love a Dutch oven to use while camping. And braising, stews, chili, there are so many options!
Our favorite recipe in our dutch oven is taking it to the lake for a day of fishing. While my husband and DD fish, I get to read and enjoy outside.
Venison stew with white beans and country veggies. Either ground venison or regular stew chunks, our DD prefers ground, and poured over last nights corn bread.
Thick and hearty for days when their energy is spend casting and, hopefully, reeling in some fish.
I have been a wanting a Dutch oven and imagine making stew in it would taste so good!
There are so many yummy things to cook. Beef tips, beef stew, chili, chicken with rice soup to name a few.
I would make a big pot of my white chicken chili or… Japanese Curry… or… beef stew or… for roasting a whole chicken. I am hungry just thinking about all of them!!
I’ve been wanting a Dutch oven for ever but it’s too pricey for our budget.
There are so many Mexican stews that were originally slow cooked in pots above fire mimicking a Dutch oven. Just one of many examples is Pozole stew made with pork and garbanzo beans. On top you put lettuce, radish, fresh onion, oregano, avocado and some lime… Served with crunchy tostadas… Yummmmm
There’s no better comfort food than this, at least for my family and friends!!!
One of my favorite recipes to make in a Dutch oven is Jamie Oliver’s chicken in lemon and milk. (I use cut-up rather than whole chicken because turning a whole chicken over to brown is neither neat nor fun.) I’d love a larger Dutch oven because we always multiply our recipes. We’d use another one for soups, chilis, and no-knead bread.
I have been wanting a cast iron dutch oven for a long time now. I would cook a whole chicken, pot roast, veggies or anything I can cook in the oven.
I don’t own a Dutch oven but if I did, I’d make some jambalaya or chicken & rice.
I think I’d have to start with this chili recipe! It looks delicious!
With my big family, I ‘inherited” my 6 nieces and nephews-they will say Chili all the way!!!! I would love to do a Moroccan Chicken and Green Beans dish. Awesome give-a-way!!!!
The (not-cast-iron) Dutch oven that I bought with a set 22 years ago (!) when I moved out of my parents’ house recently developed a bubble in the bottom. It is now in the backyard as a sandbox toy, and we’ve been using our 11-qt stock pot for all soups, stews, and large batch oatmeal cooking. It looks a bit ridiculous….generally ever about a third full.
I could really use a new Dutch oven, and oven-proof would be a treat!
The Dutch Oven is so versatile. I might start by making some red beans for red beans and rice then end by frying some beignets.
I would love to make some comfort soups in this dutch oven. I have all sizes of cast iron that I love cooking with but not a dutch oven, why you ask, well I am not sure but know I would like one. The cookware I use was from my mother-in -law who cooks no longer, the cast iron was to heavy for her. She purchased some, and was gifted others from her mother. Needless to say I have some grand cooking items in my cupboards, But my cast iron needs a new recruit in the mix.
Great post! The first two things that come to mind are a rich, savory pot roast and a loaf of jalepeno cheddar bread. Yum.
I keep seeing recipes for a Dutch oven – the most recent one was Braised Escarole with Beans and Sausage
That recipe looks delicious. My favorite recipe is to make cinnamon apples in the dutch oven. I bag of apples wedged, 1 Tbl or more of cinnamon, and a 1 Tbl water. Bring to a boil and reduce head covered for 5-10 minutes, stir once. The apples will reduce and soften up. Serve as a side dish or on waffles, ice cream, or pancakes.
I would love to win this. Currently I borrow my moms whenever I need it. My family’s favorite from the Dutch oven is Mexican rice! Yum
I have never owned a Dutch oven, however, we love to camp and I have seen several recipes that would be perfect in that Dutch oven over a camp fire! There is no reason why you can’t have fabulous food while sleeping under the stars!
For years I had anelderly gentleman neighbor who was a retired baker and an excellent cook He always referred to his casr iron Dutch oven as ‘the spider.’ He made fabulous stews, soups and roasts with it. He is the reason I own a cast iron fry pan. I would be so thrilled to own one of these lovely pans.
I love hearing the reference to a spider. That’s an old fashioned name for a dutch oven with feet. They’re not super usable these days on a stovetop, but holy moly. Nothing, and I mean nothing is better for outdoor cooking! Someday I want a spider!
Sorry, I get a little excited over cast iron. I’m super passionate about cooking in it.
pot roast and potatoes
I’ve not used a Dutch oven, just cast iron skillets, but I’m excited to try new recipes and learn new things!
I’d love to make this chicken chili!!
Lori in NY
I would love to try cooking a beef roast in a Cast Iron Dutch oven!
I would love to make a veggie chili in the Dutch oven. I use this great plant based meat alternative that would work in the recipe.

I would make my hubby’s favorite – pot roast with carrots & potatoes. Thank you for this opportunity!
I would make soup…lots of soup!
Hard to say since I haven’t used a dutch oven much – do remember seeing a braised lamb shank recipe awhile back that I’d really like to try in a good dutch oven :D.
Sounds delicious! I would love to win the Dutch oven!
I’d love to make a peach cobbler
I would make a roast in the Dutch oven…or meat for tacos! I have always wanted one of these pots!
Everyone’s ideas sound great! I am a school teacher and single mom to 2 young kids, so I would use a cast iron Dutch oven for freezable meals: chili, red sauce, apple sauce, chicken stock.
Your paleo white chicken and veggie chili recipe !
i would love to try your recipes in this pot. Especially a nice beef stew!

I would cook many things–including bison black bean chili!
I have 9 wonderful children, so large size cookware is always helpful in my home!
I love to cook two chickens at a time in a covered pot like a dutch oven, and then stretch them into several recipes. Or just eat them all if my 16yo son has any say so. 😉
Thanks for running the giveaway!
I would love to learn to cook in the cast iron Dutch oven! Never owned one, but love exploring new ideas/recipes in the kitchen. Great opportunity to do just this 🙂

Bone – in pot roasts!
I have a great recipe for Broccoli Potato Soup, and I would love to make it in my new Dutch oven! It would be a beautiful addition to my kitchen, and to pass down to my daughter when she gets her own home!! 🙂
I have always wanted to own a cast iron Dutch oven. We love to cook and as a mom of three boys and coming from a large family, it would help cook up a lot of love! The possibilities are endless!
I would cook Irish Stew in a Lodge Dutch Oven.
Hands down I would make chili! My boys take it everyday to school for lunch 🙂
I’ve actually been looking into getting one of these. We have big a Sunday Dinner and I love to make Ropa Vieja – that brisket and veggie stew is always a crowd-pleaser and SO easy. Right now, I use a terrible slow-cooker that takes forever, so I have to start on Saturday. It’s time to rid myself of that beast and hire a new workhorse.
Ropa vieja comes out amazing in this. Good luck!
Yum, I feel like my chilli is getting boring so I’m going to try this. I would love to make any meat or vegetarian strew but most of all I would love to display that pretty cast iron pot!
I’m thinking of all the wonderful soups and stews I can make in this pot! It would be awesome.
I have never had a Dutch oven, and am slowly exploring all the great things I can make on my own. I have a great recipe for a crusty bread that requires one. This would be perfect!
I’d make beef daube in it, among other things!
I’d LOVE to win the Dutch Oven!!! I don’t have one & never have…..but have been wanting one in the last year or so. I’d like to try some of the recipes in your book that I have!!!
Soup & chili interests me….and I wonder if they are good for roasts and maybe a pork loin. Sounds like the options are endless.
I hope I win!!!
Can’t wait to try your recipe! My husband and I love to cook Julia’s Beef Bourgroine. We call it Boeuf with all the wrong accent. :).
We have been making it for 20 years now in our little Dutch oven. But recently our 7 and 9 olds have suddenly become eaters so we are in need of a bigger Pot. Who knew they would like something we make and -oh no, it has flavor and sauce!
Shortribs, stew, one-oven chicken!
I have never cooked in a Dutch oven before. I have always wanted one! I love to make chilis and soups and pot roasts, so that is my plan!
I would love to make short ribs, but I would first make my Aunt’s yummy applesauce. The smell in the whole house makes me think of family!
I would bake bread daily if I had this Dutch Oven as well as soups, chili and stews! Dutch Ovens are wonderful and I truly need one.
I would love to try this recipe! I have never owned a Dutch oven, but have wanted one. I’d love to do all kinds of meals in one, but I’d most look forward to trying roasts, chili, and artisan bread!
I have heard so much about cooking in Dutch Ovens, but I haven’t yet, as I don’t own one. There are SO many recipes I would love to try!
I would make soup in my Dutch oven. I make a big pot of soup for my family every week, and it gets gobbled up!
I will make a chicken chili on this beautiful dutch oven. I always wanted to have one but too expensive. Lol Be nice if i’ll win.
Oh I have been wanting a dutch oven for so long! I would use it most for soups, stews, and sauces, but would love to try my hand at a few bread recipes with it as well.
Looks delicious! I plan on making a curry 🙂
Excited to try this recipe! Our family is also Paleo. I love making a Lemon Greek chicken in a Dutch oven, but haven’t used one in a long time. The one I inherited from my mother-in-law bit the dust.
This recipe looks awesome! This would definitely be one of my first to try. I would also love to master a Dutch oven cobbler!
Garlic roast chicken. Mmmm
I would love to use this for my homemade version of our family’s favorite chicken gnocchi soup.
Well, for starters, I would definitely make this recipe! It sounds delicious! Then I’d go on to make my mom’s delicious beef split pea soup that doesn’t taste anything at all like traditional split pea soup. Then I’d make the chicken chili again. The possibilities are endless!
I love the versatility this has from stove to oven. I would definitely make soups, stews and of course yummy chilis!

I love Dutch ovens – my favorite recipe is Jambalaya but roasts would be second. thanks!
I see many recipes that I would love to make but pass over cause it requires a Dutch oven. My friend make bread in her Dutch oven. Mmmm so yummy.

I would cook corn beef and cabbage for St, Patrick’s Day!
I saw a recipe today for a butternut squash risotto that you make in the oven. It uses brown rice instead of white rice and it just sounds amazing. The recipe calls for a Dutch oven to make the risotto, and I don’t have one! Yikes!! 🙂
I am new to this cooking thing and what I am told I NEED a dutch oven! I am a widow with 4 hungry boys my husband was the chef so… abyways thanks for all the easy recipes! Good luck to all! ♡
I don’t know what I’d cook in this large pot cause I’ve never owned one! But probably a Jumbolia of some sort? That sounds good…

I love simmering a soup or stew in a pot on the stove but I don’t have a Lodge Dutch oven. My kids also love my gluten-free stovetop Mac n cheese.

What a beautiful dutch oven! I can’t wait to try the chili recipe too! I’ve never owned a dutch oven but have drooled over them for years. Soup, stew, soup and stew, at least once a week. <3
I’m a big Volunteer football fan, so when it’s fall in East Tennessee that means my pot is on the stove simmering up some chili! This recipe sounds like something my wife would love! Thanks!
I hope she enjoys it!
So many dishes, so little time
that’s always the kitchen predicament.
This recipe actually looks tasty, so I would make this eventually. But first I would love to make some ribs while my daughter “helps” me cook them. I also have an old family recipe for a chicken stew that would smell sooooo good simmering for 5 or 6 hours.
Soups and stews!
I love my Lodge Dutch Oven (red) but would love to have two to cook with!
I have three children and bought one for each as well.
The chili looks great and I can’t wait to try it.

What wouldn’t I cook? But for starters beef stroganoff, a dish we enjoy called pepper steak and perhaps a delicious pot roast. I’m getting hungry thinking about all the possibilities.

I love to cook a pot roast for my family in a Dutch oven. The long time in the oven makes the beef so tender.
Halibut sweet potato stew!
I don’t own a dutch oven yet but have been using Lodge cast iron skillets of all sizes for my daily cooking. If I own a dutch oven, I would cook practically everything in it – from cooking Lentils, hearty soups to browning a minced chicken for minced chicken curry.
Slow-cooked beef or pork for tacos!
I will for sure be trying this recipe!!
