Easy Chili Recipe (without using chili seasoning)

Kazy Family Tradition shared by Lowell Lewis

A friend of my wife's family was camping one year at Lake McQueenie and she and her husband had a serious craving for chili. After rummaging through the cabinets in their camping trailer, she found a few items that could, when put together, possibly pass for chili. The result was a simple but very good chili recipe that she shared with my mother-in-law (Mary Kazy).

They didn't know what to name the recipe, so they simply called it "Lake McQueenie". My mother-in-law, my wife and all three of my sisters-in-law have made this for many church gatherings, family outings, evangelists, pastors, parties, etc.

This recipe is a cherished tradition at family gatherings.

This is one of the most requested dishes in our household. The kids love it! It is easy to make and it is very filling.

You really owe it to yourself to try this...

1 can tomato soup

1 can Rotel (diced tomatoes and green chilies)

1 can Ranch style beans (chili beans)

1 lb. ground beef

Brown and drain the ground beef, stir in the other ingredients and add one soup can of water, let simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over Frito's and top with lettuce, cheese and diced tomatoes.

If you try it, let me know what you think.

This sounds good, and is definitely easy. Sometimes I go low on the spice too, so this is one I must try. Thanks!
