How to Make Japanese Chili


  1. In 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.
  2. The 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.
