This chili is quick and easy if you want something fast and good. Chili is a personal thing. If you don't like beans, leave them out. More heat? Add it. Like green peppers in your chili, add them.

method Stove Top


  •   1 large
    onion, diced
  •   1 can(s)
    (14 oz) diced tomatoes
  •   2 can(s)
    (14 oz @) diced chili tomatoes (if you can't find these, use regular diced tomates and add a little more chili powder)
  •   1 can(s)
    red kidney beans
  •   1 pkg
    vegetarian style ground beef crumbles (boca™ or morningstar farms™ have them) or 1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained
  •   1 can(s)
    (6 oz) tomato paste
    salt to taste
    optional - sugar to taste to reduce the acid bite of the tomatoes
  •   1 Tbsp
    chili powder (more or less to your taste)
  •   1 pkg
    spaghetti, your choice, cooked and drained optional

How To Make

  • 1
    Saute onions in a little oil, until transluscent. (If using ground beef, saute along with the onions until done)
  • 2
    Place in a 4 quart pot along with all of the other ingredients.
  • 3
    Bring just to a boil, reduce heat, carefully check your seasonings and simmer 15 - 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. To serve, ladle over a bowl of spaghetti. Eat it plain with crackers or cornbread or ladle over a bowl of spaghetti for chili spaghetti.
