This is really our first official "cooling weather" week in Colorado! We are so glad!  We actually had a hot September and this is nice!

Last night I knew it was time for chili....easy chili!

In a saucepan saute 1/2 chopped med onion, 1/2 large chopped green pepper, and 1 stalk of chopped celery.  I like to dump my
1 1/4 pounds of hamburger right on top of that where the above is on the bottom for a few minutes getting more heat! Simmer and chop up the hamburger until everything is nicely browned.

In a nice big pot, empty these cans: 2 regular size cans of tomato soup and 1 of those cans full of water, 1 large can diced plain tomatoes, 1 each of 3 kinds of beans, regular size cans: red, pinto and black, plus 2 Tb of chili powder or more if desired and salt and pepper to taste 
Stir through and add the hamburger mixture and simmer together for 15 minutes!

Hi Bernideen,
Bustopher Jones (from Cats) sings: When I'm seen in a hurry there's probably a curry...! But I think, I would hurry for your chili, too.
Greetings, Johanna

Oh Bernideen, this chili looks perfect now that the weather is chilling off a wee bit....gotta try it! Thanks so much again for sharing your post last week on Fresh Clean and Pure Fridays over at my place. I selected your post as one that I felt was most inspirational. I hope that you can stop by again! Roz
