Quick Corny Chili

This delicious thick soup puts a 'twist' on your everyday chili recipe. 

Open a few cans, add them to browned ground beef, onions & celery and heat.  You're ready to serve!  EASY PEASY!!! 

I love this recipe so much I added it to my cookbook! 

It has several options can make as the recipe states for more of a sweet & sour kind of chili, not using as much chili powder. can just add a pkg. of chili seasoning instead. You can melt cheese in it if you'd like.  Or top it with shredded cheese. 

 I love eating mine with corn chips. Saltines would be good also. 

However you decide to fix it, know that it's very yummy and easy.  Great for a busy night on the run. 

Serve with cornbread or a sandwich and your family will have happy tummies.

  1. This is new to me! Very quick and that!

  2. I love how quick chilli is to make, although I tend to use slightly different ingredients to those you list - I particularly enjoy adding tinned chopped tomatoes for a really tomato-ey chilli. Great to see different ideas about what to add! Thank you!

  3. This really is different! I love your idea of scooping it with corn chips-I know I'd love that too. I'm pinning this to try!

  4. I love it! It's so easy and looks so flavorful and delicious!!

  5. Yum! This sounds like a great recipe for chili! I love serving cornbread with chili..its so good! =)

    Thanks for sharing your recipe.
