    Source of Recipe

    My own

    List of Ingredients

    • 1/2 to 1 lb gr. beef (use less if you like it less meaty)
    • 1 lg onion, chopped
    • 2 cloves crushed garlic
    • 1tsp seasoning salt
    • 1 can mushrooms
    • 1 sm can whole tomatoes
    • 1 lg can tomato sauce
    • 1 can kidney beans or equivilant made from dried beans, soaked and cooked
    • 3 tbsp chili powder (or to taste)
    • 1 potato for each person


    1. Preheat oven to 350. Wash and scrub potatoes. Place in oven. Cook for 1 hour.

    2. Brown ground beef in large saucepan (or dutchoven). Add in onion, seasoning salt, and garlic. Fry until onions are soft.

    3. Add mushrooms, with juice. Cook for a bit until they soften. (about 3-4 min)

    4. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce and kidney beans. Heat thoroughly.

    5. If your kids prefer their chili bland - now is the time to set some aside!

    6. Add chili powder. Simmer until potatoes are fully cooked.

    Final Comments

    If your kids are like mine - they like their chili bland! more like spaghetti sauce than chili. Set some aside for them, before adding the chili powder.

    Put one potato or half of a potato on each person's plate. Add butter and/or salt. Then top with chili. This is great served with corn bread! A very filling and satisfying meal!
