If you are a chili connoisseur this quick and easy chili recipe may not be for you but if you have picky eaters or children this chili recipe may be a life saver. You can adjust the amounts of the ingredients to the size of your family without doing much harm. This is also a perfect recipe to make the day before and just warm up when you need it.



3 small cans tomato soup*
3 soup cans of water
1/2 to 1 lb. cooked hamburger
Chili powder to taste
Garlic powder and onion powder to taste
Salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. Put everything into a large pot.
  2. Simmer at least 2 hours. It’s better to let it simmer all day if possible.


  • I usually use at least 2 teaspoons each of chili powder and garlic powder.
    You can add almost anything you want to this basic recipe. Beans work well.
    I like to crumble in some fried sausage for extra flavor.
    You can also use onions.
    I have also replaced the soup with a large can (32-36 oz.) of tomato juice and it is good, too!
