Beanless Chili

After last weeks absence I'm back with new recipe! Since it has been rainy and cold; and just overall miserable the past few days I decided to go with chili. And I found this wonderful recipe at More on the car saga: I stood out in the rain yesterday to look at a car a 1996 Oldsmobile. I may once again my have my own transportation! And let me toll you I definitely could have used this chili yesterday after getting drenched!

Beanless Chili

1 TBS olive oil
2 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 can (46oz) tomato juice
1 can (46oz) tomato juice
1 small can tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
1/2 cup water
4 TBS instant onion
4 TBS chili powder
4 TBS celery flakes
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp powdered mustard
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
2 cans green chilies, drained and chopped

1. In a large saucepan heat oil until hot. Add beef and stir until browned, about 10 minutes. 2. Add all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil.
3. Reduce heat and simmer covered, stir frequently approximately 3-4 hours.
This chili was delicious, just what the rainy day called for. The only thing I may mention is the whole time I was eating it I was wishing that I had made some cornbread to go along with it.


  1. A little shredded cheddar on top and a loaf of italian! : - )

  2. Thanks for this recipe- I love chili but I hate beans!
