Quick and Easy Chili



3 small cans tomato soup*
3 soup cans of water
1/2 to 1 lb. ground beef, cooked
Chili powder, to taste
Garlic powder and onion powder, to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste

(I usually use at least 2 teaspoons each of chili powder and garlic powder. You can also use onions.)


Put everything into a large pan and simmer at least 2 hours. It’s better to let it simmer all day if possible. You can add almost anything you want to this basic recipe. Beans work well or I like to crumble in some fried sausage for extra flavor.

*I have also replaced the soup with a large can (32-36 oz.) of tomato juice and it is good, too!
