1/1 Photo of Travelin' Chili - Five Can Chili
A while back, my husband and I were going to an event where we'd be camping for several days without refrigeration. One of the nights we wanted chili, but didn't want to have to keep anything on ice. I came up with a very tasty concoction - extremely simple, a bit lazy, and delicious!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 (15 ounce) can chili without beans (such as Dennisons or Nalley)
- 1 (11 1/2 ounce) can condensed bean with bacon soup (Campbells)
- 1 (14 ounce) can black beans, drained (I use black soybeans)
- 1 (10 ounce) can Rotel Tomatoes, with juice
- 1 (4 ounce) can diced mild green chilies
- 1Before going on your trip, mix together the spice mix and place it in a Ziploc bag.
- 2When ready to cook the chili, mix all the canned items together and add a 3/4 soup-can full of water.
- 3Add the spice mix and stir well.
- 4Cover and let simmer for at least 30 minutes before serving with good, crusty bread.
- 5If you have cheddar cheese, sprinkle some of it grated over the top!
- 6Other options: add another can or two of beans (whatever sort you like, kidney, black eyed, etc -- I've used garbanzos, butter beans, runner beans, soldier beans, all sorts!), and another can of Rotel to stretch it for 10 to 15 people. And if you want more meat, put about a pound of cooked ground beef (or turkey, or buffalo, or pork, or whatever) in, too. If you want to do it in a crockpot, dump it in and put it on low for about 4 hours. Easy!
