Out of a Can Chili #SundaySupper

Happy Father’s Day! When I asked my husband what he would like me to make him he said I like nachos, maybe something on the smoker or chili.  No matter what time of year chili is always a hit at our house so chili won out, even on Father’s Day.  My Out of a Can Chili is so easy if you couldn’t already tell that the name gives it all away.

I have tried dozens of chili recipes over the years.  Even one with pumpkin that did not go over well at all with my 10 year old.  Some were great but my boys love this original recipe that I’ve made forever.  Like my My Dad’s Chicken and Rice recipe this one I learned from a parent, my mom.

The base of my chili always stayed the same and has been forever.  It’s the recipe my mom showed me and I haven’t veered from it.  One can chili with beans, one can chili without beans and finally one can of chili beans.

For the rest of the chili I have perfected it over the years and added one can tomato soup, one can diced tomatoes and one can drained northern beans.  Do you see now why this is called ‘Out of a Can Chili’?  Start by cooking the hamburger and onion.  Cook in a large pot on medium/high heat for around 5 minutes.  Drain if you use the higher fat beef.  I like to use 80/20 or even ground turkey.  Return the meat to the same pot.  No need to dirty another one!

Add all the cans to the pot.  Make sure to drain and wash the northern beans then add those.  Put a lid on it and let simmer for 10 minutes.  Serve with sharp cheddar cheese and crackers.  And here you are…..
