My husband and I are retired with grown children, so it's nice to have a chili recipe that makes a small amount. Mushrooms make this chili stand out from any other varieties I've tried.—Anne Elsby, Chilliwack, British Columbia


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (8 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, halved


  1. In a large saucepan, cook beef, green pepper, onion and garlic over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the soup, beans, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour or until thick and bubbly. Add mushrooms; cover and simmer 15 minutes longer.
If you don't have fresh mushrooms on hand, you can use two 4-1/2 ounce cans of whole mushrooms (drained) in Deluxe Chili Con Carne.
