While planning my Christmas menu a few years ago, I came across this recipe. I decided to try it and was showered with compliments. This chunky chili has been a much-requested dish ever since.


  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, undrained
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced mushrooms, undrained
  • 6 hot dogs, halved and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large saucepan, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour or until thick and bubbly.
