3 Hr


1/4 lb
bacon, chopped
1 1/2 lb
lean ground beef
2 can(s)
campbells tomato soup
1 can(s)
8-oz. mushrooms, drained
2 can(s)
15-oz. light red kidney beans
1 can(s)
10-oz. beer
1 Tbsp
chili powder
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
1 tsp
paprika, sweet mild
1 tsp
garlic powder


1In Dutch oven or soup pot, fry the chopped bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from pot and drain on paper towels and set aside. In this same pot brown ground beef and onions, drain off excess fat. Add tomato soup, mushrooms, beans, and seasonings and mix well. Add beer and bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 3 hours. Stir occasionally.
2The original recipe says to serve over hot rice and top with Parmesan cheese, but we like it better with oyster crackers or corn chips and topped with shredded cheddar cheese.
