You don’t need much more for this than a pot and can opener.  It’s super easy to make and was the winner of an extended family chili cook off.

This is a one pot meal.  Cook the ground beef in the same pan that you will use for the soup.  You’ll have soup on the table in one hour.


1 to 1 1/2 pounds ground beef, cooked and drained of grease
5 15-ounce cans of beans, drained
2 14.5 ounce cans of diced tomatoes with onions
1 29 ounce can of tomato sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 cup brown sugar


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large Dutch oven or other pan.
  2. Stir and cook over medium heat.
  3. Let simmer for five minutes to meld the flavors.  Serve hot.
