This is an easy yet delicious chili recipe. The baked beans give it a slight sweetness to counter the spice in the chili beans and seasoning packet. We put it on top of a small baked potato with a little bit of shredded cheese. What a great winter meal.
1 pound lean hamburger meat
1 can chili beans (medium heat)
1 can baked beans
1 can petite cut tomatoes
1 package of chili seasoning
1/4 - 1/2 cup spicy tomato or vegetable juice (you decide how thick you want your chili)
Shredded cheese (optional)
Baked potato (optional)
NOTE: I tend to use all of the approximately same size of cans, typically the small ones.
Brown the hamburger meat in a dutch oven. Add the remaining ingredients. Let simmer over medium heat until bubbly, stirring periodically. Serve over a baked potato if desired.
