Recipe by momzers

I got this recipe from one of the school cookbooks, then kinda altered it to meet a mother with diapered childrens' schedule, not to mention a tight budget. Every one loves it!

This chili was really bland, had to add more spices to give it flavor. Also, it is very thick!! I added some diced tomatoes and 2 8oz cans of tomato sauce to thin it out (plus I added some chicken stock at the end because it still looked to thick) I liked the mushrooms though, never had a chili w/ them

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a frying pan fry up beef, onions and mushrooms until beef is golden brown.
  2. Add peppers at this point, cook until slightly soft. (I add some chili powder to the beef to cook it in when the kids aren't eating it.).
  3. In a large pot (spaghetti noodle size -- you know what I'm talking about) add tomato soup, tomato paste and chili beans and simmer over low heat.
  4. When the beef, onion and pepper mix is ready add it to the pot and stir.
  5. Sometime I add chili powder now.
  6. Serve.
