This is not your average Chili. It's not a Texas style, or any other style for that matter. This is the first thing I learned to cook and was taught by my Grandma when I was 11. It is my most favorite thing to eat and I hope you enjoy it too!

    While hamburger is browning and noodles are cooking- pour tomatoa juice, chili beans, and seasonings(including butter) into a large pot.

    Add the hamburger and noodles to the pot and cook for 15-30 minutes.
