There's something about chili and winter that just go together. After being out in the cold (working, running errands, at school, etc), our family loves to sit down to a good warm meal this time of year. One of our favorites is chili, as it's something all five of us enjoy eating (even my picky eaters!).
I used to make a chunky chili with chunks of tomato, pepper, etc...but my kiddos were not a fan. Then I was introduced to my mother-in-law's recipe, and not only was it easier to make, but a big hit with the young and old alike! It's simple, creamy and best of all, delicious!
1 lb hamburger, browned and drained
1 lg 36 oz can chili beans (we use Mrs. Grimes an LOVE them), undrained
2 15 oz cans Tomato Sauce
1 10.75 oz can Tomato Soup
2 T Tastefully Simple Wahoo Chili Seasoning (or your chili seasoning preference)
1. Brown and drain hamburger
2. Mix hamburger, chili beans, tomato sauce, tomato soup and chili seasoning together in a pan (or crockpot) and heat through.
I've made this both on the stovetop, as well as in the crockpot. They are equally as good, but I love how simple the crockpot is for making supper ahead of time! I just mix all the ingredients up and set it on low all day. It is delicious! You can use whatever chili seasoning you prefer, but if you've never tried Tastefully Simple's Wahoo Chili Seasoning Blend, I would recommend it! To me, that's what makes this chili so amazing and such a hit whenever I make it.
Soon I will post the recipe for a yummy corn bread casserole that I make along with it! Stay tuned...
