Super Simple Scrumptious (S)Chili

1 pound ground beef
1 large can (27 oz) Busch's Chili Beans, Mild
1 small can (16 oz) Busch's Chili Beans, Mild
1/4 cup water

Brown beef, and drain. Mix cooked beef, both cans of beans, and water in medium sauce pan. Heat to near boil and warm for about 10 minutes. Add onions and/or cheese to taste. Serve with saltine crackers.

  • If you prefer more meat to beans, use about 1 1/2 pounds ground beef and only the large can of beans.
  • If you prefer spicier foods, use the other flavors of Busch's Chili Beans. (I believe they come in both Medium and Hot.)
  • I do not recommend the lightly salted or unsalted crackers. The salted is really best.
This is much easier than making chili "from scratch", and it tastes great. It is much better than the canned chili--because the meat is fresh--and it only takes a few extra minutes to cook. This is great for those cold (chilly) evenings.

Approximate Cook Time: 30 minutes, including prep.

Approximate Servings: 4


    1. Linz- This is what you call one of them recipes, ain't it? Instructions on how to cook something? This is a very nice public service you're doing here for your chick readers to keep their men happy.

    2. Actually, DaBlade, I was thinking YOU could cook this FOR your woman. Uh hem.
