Sweet Garden Chili for a Snowy Day

2016-1-4 Sweet Garden Chili (1)Here is another one of my favorite recipes.  This is a sweeter chili with lots of good flavors and it’s fun to look at!  I usually make it in the fall when I have way too many tomatoes.  Oftentimes I chop or blend up garden tomatoes at at the end of the year and put them in quart bags in the freezer.  When you add them to soups, they taste like they are fresh from the garden.  (None of my kids like tomatoes, but they love this soup.)

Sweet Garden Chili 

Brown hamburger and onion
2 large cans of Baked Beans (Bush’s Homestyle is good)
2 small cans of chili
1 can of kidney beans (drained)
1 can of black beans
1 large can of diced tomatoes
1 can corn
1 can small olives
1-2 cups of chopped celery
1 chopped green pepper

If I need to thin it a bit, I add more blended or crushed/diced tomatoes or a can of V-8 juice.
