Super Bowl Chili

This is a hearty and spicy chili that is sure to hit the spot at a Super Bowl Party or on a cold winter's night. The key is in using name brand tomato soup; I have tried it with others but haven't gotten the same results. Your friends will never guess the secret ingredient. Enjoy!


1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 (10.75 ounce) cans Campbell’s condensed tomato soup
1(14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
1 (14.5 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
2 - 5 tablespoons chili powder (depending on your personal taste)
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 (15.5 ounce) cans pinto beans, drained (optional)
Cayenne pepper to taste


Crumble the ground beef into a soup pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Drain off most of the grease. Add onion, red pepper flakes, and half of the cumin; cook and stir until onion is tender.

Pour in the tomato soup, chicken broth, and crushed tomatoes. Season with chili powder, salt and pepper. Simmer for 30 minutes. Pour in the beans, and season with remaining cumin and cayenne pepper; simmer for another 30 minutes. Now enjoy.


  • To cook this recipe in a crock-pot, just cook the meat and onions in a fry pan, and then add everything to the crock-pot. Great for pot lucks served with grated cheddar and oyster crackers
  • To try a different twist, add mild Italian sausage, or a hot sausage with the ground beef.
  • If you like a thinner chili, add an extra can of chicken stock.
  • For you Bulk Cooking fans - this recipe also freezes very well!
