Steam does not come out of your ears! Your sinuses do not open in a flood! (just a little clearing :)) And say goodbye to Heartburn! It's a definite comfort food for a cold Autumn or Winter's day. It's the chili recipe I grew up with. I know many think the spicier the better. I guess I'm just not one of those people. Too much spice and I reach for Tums :( BTW In my opinion, the V-8 juice is the better choice.
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 1 small onion, cubed
- 1 can tomato soup
- 1 can water
- 2 cans chili beans, with sauce (mild or hot)
- 1 cup V8 vegetable juice or 1 cup tomato juice
- 1 can diced tomatoes or 1 can chopped tomatoes or 1 can stewed tomatoes
- salt and pepper
- Brown beef and onions.
- Add rest of ingredients.
- Simmer 20 minutes.
- NOTE: Tastes better the next day.
- The ingredients have time to meld together.
I tried this recipe and it was very good and easy to make!! I used one can on chili beans (mild) and one can of kidney beans. I had gall bladder surgery and the doctor said to stay away for grease, fats and spices and I was so tired of chicken that I thought I would try this and it was great!! It did not upset me at all!! When I had left overs I fixed some pasta and put the chili over it and it was very good too!! Thanks for the recipe Kris!!!!
This chili was really easy to make and tasted good. I made a few changes to it due to available ingredients. Instead of V8 juice I used one small can of tomato sauce and 1/2 cup water. I added about 1/8th teaspoon of Mexican Chili Powder and used diced tomatoes with chilies instead of diced tomatoes. My husband liked it too.
