This is a reader request!
I’ve learned that chili making can be quite controversial! I grew up eating chili and I had made chili myself lots of times before landing on MY recipe. Well, it’s actually stolen from a neighbor of Tom’s growing up and from the back of the Red Gold tomato juice can!
-One big old can of tomato juice found in the juice aisle. I use Red Gold but you could use another brand I’m sure.
-one chili mix spice packet
-one tablespoon of sugar
-one teaspoon of cinnamon
-macaroni noodles cooked and added separately upon serving
-very tiny diced onion
-one can diced tomatoes
-one can chili beans – mild or hot – your preference
Brown your ground beef and when almost done, add onion. Drain on paper towel lined plate and then add back in to your pot. Add juice, tomatoes, beans, spice packet, sugar, and cinnamon. Let it all cook together and let the flavors marry. Serve with macaroni, Fritos, and some cheddar cheese.
It’s really simple, but it’s the best I have ever had!
