1 lb. ground beef
1 can Hunts chili beans
1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes with juice
2 cans Campbell’s tomato soup
1-2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. ketchup and or BBQ sauce
Cheddar cheese

I like using both ketchup and BBQ Sauce, but the BBQ Sauce has got to be Sweet Baby Ray’s because it goes really well with the brown sugar. If you’ve never tried it, go get some! This go around the Mr. added spicy BBQ sauce to his and he liked it! So if you like your chili more spicy/hot you can always omit the brown sugar and add hot BBQ.

It’s super easy to make…

*Cook the ground beef
*Mix all ingredients in a big pot and bring to a boil.
*Add beef to the other ingredients and simmer until beans are warmed all the way through.
POTATOES

How do you cook your potatoes? I usually cover them in foil and bake them, not this time! I tried something a little different!


What You Need
Large  Russet Potatoes
Canola Oil
Salt

Directions
Wash and dry your potatoes
Poke them a bunch with a fork-this helps moisture escape during cooking
Coat lightly with the oil and sprinkle with salt.

Bake at 350 for about an hour, depending on the size of your potatoes

MY THOUGHTS:
These were really great! Like melt in your mouth great! It’s the closest I’ve gotten to having butter in a potato without actually having butter. Honestly, I could have had that potato all by itself and been completely happy about it.

NEXT TIME I’m going to try them in a crockpot, we’ll see how that turns out.

TIPS
—-I usually buy my meat 2lbs at least. I get the lean 80/20 or 93/7 and freeze each pound separately. If you’re in a bind and need to get something on the table quick you can start cooking the ground beef when it’s frozen but it makes the meat a little tougher. When you’re using it for something like chili it shouldn’t be too much of a problem, however.

This meal has got to be 5 Stars…this chili is definitely one of my go to recipes, especially when it’s cold outside! and the potatoes were exceptional.
