Uber Easy Lentil Chili

Recipe by Jenny H.

Why is it that tomato soup is always on sale? I always have way to much of it in my cupboard and I love this recipe because It gets rid of it quickly.

This is, indeed, super easy to make on a weeknight. And pretty tasty too! I thought it was too sweet with the addition of the splenda (and I like sweet things!) but I would definitely make it again, leaving out the sweetner. This is a simple dish to make, while you are cooking other things, to take to work for lunches.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cooked lentils as directed on package.
  2. When water is almost all absorbed, add tomato soup (undiluted), garlic, pepper and onion.
  3. Season with sugar sweetener (I usually use 3-4 packets), salt and pepper to your taste.
  4. Cook further if you want a thick chili or add a little water if you want it thinner.
  5. Note, the lentils continue absorbing water after cooking, so if there are leftovers, it serves as a good casserole the next day.
