Gosh - is it just me, or are there a ton of Chili recipes out there? My word! If you tried a new recipe every day, it could take you many years of Autumns and Winters to get through them all! My family and I prefer the simple, everyday version over those with jalapenos, buffalo meat, white beans, or sliced zucchini. Believe me - my recipe is nothing special, but it is hearty and delicious. Thick, not brothy. Tomato-y with no chunks - just the way we like it.

1# hamburger
Onion flakes
Garlic powder
15 oz. Hunts tomato sauce
1 can Campbell's tomato soup
1 can chili beans
1 C. water
1 tsp. sugar
1 ½ tsp. chili powder
Salt & pepper to taste

Brown hamburger with onion and garlic; drain. Add remaining ingredients and simmer, uncovered, 30-60 minutes. Serve over rice, or top with grated cheese and corn chips.
