This is my Grandma Dorothy's recipe for a slightly different take on your average chili. We ate this very often growing up. It is just as good reheated and even can be frozen. Simple to make on those nights you don't have a lot of time, and is a great way to stretch a dollar! When my mom makes this she makes it in a very large pot and adds more water and spices, but still uses the same amount of sauce, and soup, etc. So you can stretch this to more if you'd like by adding more water and spice to your taste. She also doesn't usually measure things out so estimated on ingredient amounts as well as time to make.
