Chili is one of our family favorites during the Fall/Winter - I love that it's one pot and that my kids will take it in their thermos for lunch.  This is the recipe that my mom always made while I was growing up so it's a total comfort for me and I try to keep the necessary ingredients on hand because sometimes you just NEED a pot of chili.  I had planned on sharing this recipe next week, but with Super Bowl this weekend I thought I'd share since a big pot of this with cheese and fritos would be an awesome game-watching meal.

Here's what you'll need...
- 2 lbs of ground beef
- chopped onion (I use frozen and just throw some in there)
- 2 cans light red kidney beans (drained)
- 2 cans dark red kidney beans (drained)
- large can of diced tomatoes
- 2 cans of tomato soup
- brown sugar
- chili powder
- Worcestershire sauce

Step One - brown the ground beef with the onion, drain.

Step Two - drain the beans, put the beans, soup and tomato into the pot with the cooked ground beef and onion.

Step Three - shake in a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce, add a tablespoon of brown sugar and about 2 tablespoons of chili powder (you can add more or less depending on your family's tastes).

Step Four - let the chili simmer for a couple of hours and then adjust seasoning as needed.  You can also put everything into a crockpot and cook it on low that way.

So simple but so good!!!  Dave and I love to eat this topped with shredded cheese and served with sweet cornbread (if you have a Market Street grocery story by you their cornbread is THE BEST!) and my kids love it with cheese and Fritos :) 

If you make this I'd love to know what you think!!!  ENJOY!


  1. Ohhh this sounds delicious! I've never heard of tomato soup in a chili! Thanks for sharing =)

  2. We have ate chili all week this week with the cold front we had!

  3. Yum! It's freezing cold/snowy here & this looks delicious (especially with cornbread). Thank you for the recipe--perfect for wintery weather!

  4. Yum!! I love a good bowl of chili!
    Try replacing the tomato soup with spicy Bloody Mary mix.... next level yumminess!

  5. We are major chili fans in the Pegram house!!

  6. Chili is one of my favorite foods! I use Maple Baked Beans in mine to give it the sweeter kick. The kiddos love it and I've won a chili comp with the sweeter chili.

    1. That sounds AMAZING!
      definitely going to try it

  7. Add like 5 chocolate chips and ⅛ tsp cinnamon one time when you’re feeling adventurous - it’s CRAZY good I swear

    1. My mom always puts cocoa powder in her chili, too - it's delicious! I'll have to try it with the chocolate chips and cinnamon.

  8. That looks delicious. I'm allergic to tomatoes so I make my chili with pureed tomatillos.

  9. We made this recipe today and it was amazing! Thank you for sharing! :)
