Uncle Matt's Chile

My son Matt, uncle Matt to two of my granddaughters, came up with this while looking for a quick Chile recipe to make when camping. Matt loves hot food but he leaves out the hot spice so that everyone can flavor their own bowl to taste. We all love this simple to make Chile. It takes about 15 minutes to prepare. I sometimes make it at work and there is never any leftovers.


 1 pound Ground Beef
 1 can Tomato Sauce
 1 can Tomato Soup
 1 can chopped Tomatoes
 1 can Beans any kind 2 cans is not too much or 2 different kinds of beans
 1 small onion chopped
 Chili Powder to taste
 Salt to taste
 Sour Cream to taste
 Frito's brand corn chips
 Shredded cheddar cheese
 Hot sauce to taste


I usually start this recipe right after breakfast. First brown the ground beef. If you have a microwave you can put the beef in a bowl and cook for 1 minute intervals, break up the beef, then cook for 1 more minute. Repeat until the beef is nice and brown with no pink remaining. This usually takes a total of about 5 to 8 minutes total for 1 pound of beef. While the beef is cooking open caned items and put in slow cooker undrained.

Drain the beef of excess grease, add chopped onion, combine with the canned items in the slow cooker.

Let simmer until dinner time. Since everything is already cooked it just needs to be hot. Put sour cream, Frito's and cheese in a bowl. Pour chili on top. Add Hot sauce and salt to taste. Enjoy!

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
