Nana's Chili

Fall is almost here! I think I hear the Hallelujah chorus.

I love fall, it is by far my favorite season.

There are many reasons to love fall, and one of them is soup.

Today I will be sharing our family's favorite chili recipe.

We love it for many reasons:

1) It is very easy to make.

2) It is a family original, my Nana started making this recipe 40 years ago.

3) It has a great mild taste and can be spiced up to each persons taste.

Nana's Chili
1 lb ground chuck
3-4 TB dried minced onions
1 10oz can tomato soup
1 28oz can diced tomatoes
2 16oz beans (red, kidney or pinto)

In a large stock pot sprinkle a thin layer of minced dried onions to cover bottom of pot, add meat.  After the meat is thoroughly cooked, drain the fat and discard.  Return to stove top and add remaining ingredients. Cook on medium/low heat for about 1 hour, until beans have softened.  Add salt, pepper and chili powder to taste.

Below are some photos of the triple batch we made today.

Note on the beans: In our triple batch we used two of each. If you are making a single batch, just mix the beans to your personal preference.
We LOVE our new All-Clad stockpot

  2. What a great recipe! We have the keynote speaker and his family for our Family Worship Conference staying with us at the end of the month. I have been looking for some easy recipes to do to feed a large group. This chili recipe will be just the thing. Thanks for sharing it!!



Look forward to hearing from y'all, just remember your southern manners.
