This chili is a combination of ground beef and stew beef, giving it fabulous texture and beefy flavor. The recipe calls for tomato soup with the beans and tomatoes but feel free to use a small can of tomato paste and a small can of tomato sauce to replace the condensed soup.


  • 1 pound ground beef, browned and drained

  • 1 pound stewing beef, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 (15-ounce) can red kidney beans

  • 1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans

  • 1 (28-ounce) can stewed or diced tomatoes

  • 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed tomato soup

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 1 large green pepper, diced

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker; mix well. Cover and cook chili on low about 8 hours, or until the beef chunks are very tender and fall apart easily. Add more water if you like your chili thinner.

  2. Serve chili with hot baked cornbread or oyster crackers.

Recipe Variations

  • Replace the tomato soup and water with an 8-ounce can of tomato sauce and a 6-ounce can of tomato paste.
  • For a little extra kick, add 1 small can of green chile peppers and/or 1/2 teaspoon of cumin.
