I was in a hurry to make supper tonight so I rummaged around and found these 3 ingredients in the cupboard… they actually worked wonderfully for a quick chili – which tasted really good with my left-over sour cream cornbread – but I also think this would be awesome as a topper for a baked potato!


  • 1 lb hamburger
  • 2 cans chili spiced diced or stewed tomatoes (i use Alymer brand – tomatoes spiced with chili seasoning, onion, celery, peppers)
  • 1 can bean medley, drained (i use Unico brand – contains red kidney beans, chick peas, romano beans, and black eyed peas)


  1. Fry the hamburger in a skillet or pot for chili and drain the fat
  2. add 2 cans pre-spiced (chili flavor) tomatoes
  3. add can of bean medley
  4. cook on medium low for 30 minutes or longer if desired, stirring occasionally
  5. enjoy with cornbread or by itself
