Super-Duper Chili Recipe

No one ever guesses the "secret ingredient" in this recipe that I created. A can of mushroom soup is what makes the chili so thick and creamy. Take this spicy concoction to a fall potluck or church dinner, and watch folks warm up to it! -Elizabeth Mays, Nunnelly, Tennessee
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:14 servings


  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) hot chili beans, undrained
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) salsa
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained

"I wasn't sure about this recipe due to the Velveeta cheese and cream of mushroom soup but I made it anyway and guess what? I loved it!! It was great and my family liked it too. A bit on the hot side so if you want to tame it down, omit one can of the hot chili beans. Also, just a tip---Walmart brand makes a "cheese dip" in a jar that I used instead of the Velveeta because it was a lot cheaper. Enjoy!"

"I have made this Chili since 2006 for everything from cold winter dinners, camping with friends and family to our Christmas Eve open house. Everyone loves it always!!! My husband and I are now doing Weight Watchers and by calculating this recipe as it's writen it's only 7 points!!!! I'm gonna trim the points a bit by using low fat/salt items and turkey meat products."

"I am SO GLAD I came across this recipe! My girlfriend gave me this recipe some time back, but, she wrote it down from memory and forgot to include the chili powder and cayenne pepper so I always thought it good but rather bland. Made it this way and it is truely super duper chili. Rated the best at our last church potluck!"
