We haven't had this in awhile and since it is officially Fall, it is a good time to eat chili! My family was happy to see it again. My 5 year old told me it is his favorite soup. The 7 year old said he liked it OK, but his favorite soup had noodles in it and chicken.....
2lbs ground beef (Most of the time I just do 1lb. b/c that is what we have on hand), browned
1 can tomato sauce
2 cans tomato paste (I think I use 1 can)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
onion powder (just sprinkle on as much as you like)
2 cans pork n' beans
2 T mustard
2 T ketchup
2 T BBQ sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
chili powder to taste
water as needed to make it the consistency you like.
**Oh no, I have been forgetting to put in the cumin! I think it calls for 1 tsp? of cumin.
The brown sugar and BBQ sauce make this especially nice (and bad for you, I am sure :) But hey, it is fall and we need to pack it on to keep warm, right?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Sorry, Trish for taking out all of the healthy chunks of veggies (tomato, onion, garlic)
