and hard about should I post this or not. And yes, I'm gonna! But must admit I'm kinda nervous. So, as many here know I cook at Publix Apron's once a week. About 8 months ago the recipe was this chili. Being the food snob that I am...or was, I looked at the ingredients and snickered. Most of the time is spent opening the cans! Seriously, a can of tomato soup? But loving my 1 day of cooking at Apron's every week more than about anything...cook and open I did. And then I tasted it. Wow! It is a great chili! So I bought everything and made it the next day for John (chili being his favorite food) and he said I was the best cook in the world. This after spending 42 years trying just about every recipe that has come along. All good but really, this is a great recipe. So I'm finally posting it and my head is held high! If you have the time, make it and do a test run and see if you like it. You're certainly not out a lot of cost if it's not what you like.

Ground Beef Chili


1 onion (rinsed)
1 1/2 lb ground chuck beef
3 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 (10.75-ounce) can condensed tomato soup
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes/sweet onions (undrained)
1 (10-ounce) can milder diced tomatoes/green chiles (undrained)
1 (16-ounce) can chili beans in mild sauce (undrained)(Orchid's note: This is Bush's Best Chili Beans-Pinto Beans in Chili Sauce-Medium Sauce)
1 (15-ounce) can black beans (drained)

Remove ends and peel from onion; chop onion coarsely and divide in half. Preheat large saucepan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Place beef, chili powder, seasoned salt, pepper, and one-half of the onions in pan. Cook 4–5 minutes, stirring to crumble meat, or until meat is brown and no pink remains.
Stir in remaining ingredients, including remaining one-half onions. Bring to a boil, stirring often.
Reduce heat to low; cook 10 more minutes, stirring occasionally, to blend flavors.
