Make this NO bean chili and listen to the compliments come pouring in. Not only that, but it's so easy to change up this recipe from a soup to a sauce. Magnificent!
OR add a couple of cans of kidney beans (red or white) or your favourite types. Then, of course, this is no longer a "NO" bean version of chili, but a rather wonderful bowl of 'regular' chili!
I call this my 'chili soup recipe' and found that it's the best way for someone to learn how to make chili. I've altered it. I've experimented with it. We all love it!
I usually make a double batch of this bean-less chili and serve it all week. Thankfully, my hubby loves leftovers and this chili seems to taste better the longer it stands. :-)
I had unexpected company drop in one day and needed a quick dinner. I cooked some spaghetti and used this chili (thankful leftovers from the day before) as the sauce. Along with a salad, it was a meal fit for a king!
The origin of this recipe comes from the Formula Diet (40-30-30) by Joyce & Gene Daust. My husband and I loved this so much, it has become one of my best ground beef recipes that I use.

Anne C. says, “Nothing better than home made chicken soup. I use a lot of chives just before serving. We all love it at least once a week.”
