Chili has always been one of those easy comfort meals for me. In college, it was something that I could throw together with minimal ingredients, for relatively cheap, and have meals for days. While I’ve experimented with variations of my recipe over the years, I always seem to come back to this one classic. To me, it’s that perfect hearty comfort meal.
- 1 sweet onion, coarsely chopped
- 1 lb ground chicken (turkey or beef work too!)
- 3 TBSP chili powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 (10.75-oz) can condensed tomato soup
- 1 (14.5-oz) can diced tomatoes/sweet onions (undrained)
- 1 (10-oz) can mild diced tomatoes/green chiles (undrained)
- 1 (16-oz) can chili beans in mild sauce (undrained)
Note: This recipe also works great cooking in a crockpot!
Preheat a large saucepan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Coarsely chop your onion and place the onion, ground meat, chili powder, seasoned salt, and better into the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes until the onions begin to soften and meat begins to brown. Stir in all of your canned ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to low and cook for about 10 more minutes.
And as a personal favorite, I always top mine with sour cream and shredded cheese. I hope you find this recipe as comforting and delicious as I do!
