This is more of a chili soup, but we like it:
2 quarts of home-canned tomatoes, plus one jar of water
1 lb ground beef, browned
1 envelope chili seasoning
2 cans chili beans
handful of dry pasta
Combine all in a large pot, simmer for 20-30 min until pasta is done and flavors have blended.
Serve with crackers, shredded cheese, and sour cream. We also had hot dogs with our chili.
