From Donna Drummond
1-1/2 lb hamburger
2 medium onions, diced
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp chili powder (less, if you like it mild, like John and I do!)
2 cans kidney beans, drained or 2 cans chili beans, undrained
1 tbsp fat
1 cup finely diced celery
1 small can tomato sauce
1 can tomato soup
1 quart water
1. Fry up hamburger and onions in fat. Drain.
2. Add all ingredients and let simmer for 1-1/2 hours.
3. If you like thicker chili, add bread crumbs and stir them in unto dissolved, and simmer 15 minutes more.
Linda's Note: I do not use the fat; I just use fresh hamburger (1 lb only) and onions to fry and drain. I use a lot less chili powder as I use the chili beans. I add an extra can of them and a tad more water. I also add any leftover beef gravy I have. I also serve it with finely shredded Cheddar cheese on top.
13-1/2 oz can pineapple tidbits
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup Minute Rice
6 Maraschino cherries, diced
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1. Drain pineapple, measuring syrup.
2. Add water to syrup to make 1-1/4 cups; bring to a boil over high heat in saucepan.
3. Stir in rice and salt. Cover; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
4. Add cherries and pineapple. Chill thoroughly.
5. Fold chilled rice mixture and marshmallows into Cool Whip.
6. Cover and chill till ready to serve.
This is nice served with additional Maraschino cherries on top.
