Ever since I was a little kid this was always a favorite of my mom's to make when we went out for a day of skiing. Now that I've made it, I can see why. While it's pretty easy to make, it only gets better the longer you simmer it. Throw it into a crock pot while you're out on the slopes for a few hours in the freezing cold and all of a sudden Chili really starts to sound good.
So what are you going to need? The list of ingredients is short and sweet. (well not literally sweet of course)
- About 12 medium sized tomatoes (core them, peel them, and then cut them in half)
- 2lbs Ground Beef (I used 92% lean, but I'm sure 90% or 85% would be just as good)
- 1 lg onion
- 1 green pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1-2 cans of Bush's Chili Beans (depending on how much of a bean lover you are, or if you share a bed with somebody)
- 1 can Campbell's Tomato Soup
Next, you put the beef, food processed pepper and onion, salt, pepper and chili powder all in a frying pan. Turn it on to medium-high heat to get it all going. Everything going in to the pan should look a lot like this..
