This is a chili recipe my grandmother always made, and has been handed down through the generations. It's more of a chili soup, than chili beans. Very warming, wholesome, and good on a snow day! Makes a large pot to serve many, or to have as leftovers. My family always eats it all though! Good for reheating if you have a busy week ahead. Let me know what you think? *I do everything in 1 LARGE pot. You can also use 2 cans of the same beans. It originally called for the kidney beans, but I like the added chili flavor of the chili beans.
saute chopped onion and celery in small amount of water until tender.
Add hamburger meat, salt and pepper generously. Cook til browned.
Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT spaghetti.
Bring 'soup' to a boil. Add spaghetti noodles by breaking them up into 1/3's. Should be about 4 inches in length. Let come to a second boil and cook until spaghetti noodles are tender. About 10 mins.
Serve with oyster crackers or saltines.
