And, in case any of you are interested in a mega-old, mega-wonderful chili recipe here it is, in my Grammy’s words …
Uncle Sid’s Quick Chili
large onion chopped
# or more hamburger
can Campbell Tomatoe soup
T. chili powder
can pinto beans or kidney beans
Brown meat in a little oil – Add chopped onions + garlic
cook slightly – add 1 can soup plus 1 1/2 cans water + seasonings –
Cook some more – add 1 can beans – cook longer.
Can you tell she jotted it down from memory? A bit of this, a bit of that. Cook it, stir it. Done! Oh, and if you’re wondering, Uncle Sid was my Grammy’s brother-in-law. Sweet that although this is definitely my Grammy’s chili that she has always given him credit!
