Margie’s Chili

This is the perfect recipe for busy weeknights. I simply spice up canned tomato soup to create a flavorful and oh-so-easy chili. —Margaret Ganzel, Mankato, Minnesota

    While this was quick and easy to make, it was not a good chili recipe. It was too sweet and tasted more like baked beans. I will not make this one again.

    I added a can of tomatoes to the recipe, thought the addition of the chili sauce gave it a nice slightly sweet taste.

    The chili was good, a little too sweet for me though. I also added a can of diced tomatoes with jalepenos in it and some chopped garlic, green pepper and celery. I will see how it tastes the next day.

    I gave this recipe four stars because I added canned diced tomato and bell peppers.This chili was very good and would make again.

    This is a sweet and spicy chili, and my family of 7 enjoyed it. I served it with angel hair pasta, and will definitely make it again. :-)
