This is my favorite from my childhood and my dad wrote down the recipe.

Combine the following in large pot and remove grease.
3 pounds hamburger
salt and pepper
2 large onions chopped
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Combine the following in separate pot until warm.
2 cans Cambells tomato soup
2 Hunts tomato paste
3 Tbsp Chili powder
2 Tbsp Cumin
1 pinch crushed red pepper

Combine second pot of ingredients in larger pot than add 2 cans of Hunts Chili beans. (I do not believe they make them anymore but heard that Smart and Final had a similar version.)

Cook in oven at 275 degrees for 6.5 hours uncovered - stirring every 1/2 - 1 hour.

It tastes just like when my Dad made it for me!! Enjoy!

My mother disliked green peppers, so subbed celery, which I also prefer. I also omit the salt because I like more chili powder, which is quite salty. All I need is some ground beef, and it goes on my menu--our cold, windy rainy weather of late and to come is the perfect time to make some chili. Hmm...I do have some ground turkey, and with a touch of soy sauce added for umami flavor it just might be good, so maybe tonight! Thanks again for the timely post.

that's my chili recipe also, but i use a qt of home canned tomatoes. (my secret ingred is a squart of ketchup) because of the sugar, it sorta cuts the tomatoe acidity, and adds spices.

Along with a pound of ground beef and a can of kidney beans I use a small can of tomato sauce, and when I double the recipe like to substitute a can of diced tomatoes instead of a second can of sauce. I use 2 tablespoons of chili powder in a single batch, and add more to taste, if needed, after the chili simmers a while. Little or no salt, as the chili powder mixture is usually quite salty already. A bit of sugar, garlic powder, basil and/or cumin sometimes improves the flavor. I also add up to a sauce can of water (which is one cup) as needed for thick soup consistency. Simmer for 15 minutes minimum, up to an hour.

Now I'm hungry for some good chili!
This is how I have made mine for years except we don't do beans in our chili. I don't know that I ever had a recipe. OOPS! I never added celery and have always added chopped onions.

True chili powder does not have salt in it. But the kind like McCormick Brand or Spice Island brand does have some. If you buy the envelopes of chili seasoning mix that is loaded with salt. But the straight powder should only have dried ground chilis, garlic, oregano. This stuff is awesome:

I can have a pot of chili in less then 30 min. I got this recipe from cooking school. Actual recipe as given.

Add ingredients according to the amount you want to make:

Brown lean ground beef with chopped onion.
Put in pot, add beef stock until covered. Add more as needed to make thin or thick chili.
Add canned diced tomatoes
Add canned black beans
Lots of cumin to taste
Lots of chili powder to taste
Sazon seasoning, little at a time, it gets more flavorful after adding.
Salt to taste.
Paprika to add color.
Bring to simmer and it's done.

I won a local chili cookoff with this recipe. Only had eight entries, but I won. LOL
