Recipe Friday - Chili

I'm not a big fan of chili because it's usually too soupy or too many tomatoes.  Prince Charming loves chili but doesn't like too many beans and finding a happy medium doesn't happen often.  However, I think I may have found it in this recipe that came from a church cookbook.  The only request was from George and he asked that I add noodles.  With the cold, rainy weather we are having, this will be a perfect meal for today.


1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained
1 small onion, chopped
3/4 c. sugar
1 1/2 qt. tomato juice
1 (12 oz) can tomato paste
2 (15 oz.) cans peeled and diced tomatoes
2 (15 1/2 oz.) cans mild chili beans
2 (15 1/2 oz.) cans hot chili beans
1 pkg. chili seasoning mix
few drops Tabasco sauce
chili powder to taste

Brown ground beef and onion; drain.  Add rest of ingredients and simmer until done.

The last time I made this I put it in a large crockpot (didn't add all the juice since it wouldn't all fit), and I used 4 cans of mild chili beans because I also browned chorizo with the hamburger to give the chili a different flavor.

Enjoy and stay warm!

Awesome! I've been wanting to make chili for a long time now. But I'll have to crank up the a/c in my apartment to make it feel like winter since it's still so hot down here!

I wondered if Son #1 was doing some cooking. I hope he is practicing for when Gpa H. and I come up next. I'm looking for a meal. Florida Gramma
