Wednesday’s Chili

After talking to my mom she believes this was a recipe made by my grandmother. The french onion soup adds a different flavor to this chili and it’s o so good!

  • 1.5 pounds ground beef
  • 1 can french onion soup
  • 1 TBSP chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • .5 tsp pepper
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) sliced, stewed tomatoes
  • 1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
  • 1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
  • 1 can black beans

I brown the beef and then throw everything in a crock pot for at least 4 hours. It can be cooked as long as you want or need. My oldest child has a dairy allergy and who would have thought french onion soup has diary in it, but it does! So I cook everything except the soup. Then about 30 minutes before serving take out a portion for her and add the french onion soup for everyone else.

It’s easy to travel with as well. If eating it the day you arrive at the campsite, I just travel with it in my crock pot. If eating it a few day later – cook it, let it cool and thrown it in a ziplock bag or container to travel. Then use a crockpot liner and warm it up for a few hours during the day and it’s a delicious warm dinner for a cool evening outside. The crockpot liner makes clean up a breeze!

The perfect recipe for colder spring/fall camping days. I always bake corn bread before we leave home, throw it in a zip lock bag so people can have it on the side (or my husband crumbles it up in his soup).
