"Hobo chili" gets it's name from the fact that it is made quickly and easily from only a few simple, inexpensive ingredients. Chili, a great meal for the cold months of winter, is a hearty, filling combination of beans, tomatoes, beef and occasionally vegetables. Adjust the amount of chili powder depending upon just how spicy you like it.
Things You'll Need
- 1 lb.round beef
- 1 can baked beans
- Chili powder
- 28 oz.can diced tomatoes
- Celery (optional)
- Onion (optional)
- Large, deep pan
- Wooden spoon
- Can opener
- Sharp knife (optional)
- Cutting board (optional)
Brown 1 lb of ground beef in a large, deep pan or skillet. Drain the ground beef.
Chop an onion and two ribs of celery finely, if desired.
Add the chopped vegetables, one can of baked beans, 1-28 oz. can of diced tomatoes and 2 tbsp. of chili powder to the skillet and mix well.
Stir the mixture periodically over medium-high heat until the celery and onion is cooked and the hobo chili is thoroughly heated. This should take approximately 20 minutes.
