Directions:

Listen to Episode 25: Five Can Chili

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 2 cans beans
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • 1-2 cans water
  • 1/2 – 1 lb meat, pre-cooked (or cubed yams) – Optional

  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • Chopped veggies

Directions:

  • Put all ingredients into a 4 quart or larger crockpot. Mix well.
  • Cook on low for 6-8 hours. If using fresh yams or sweet potatoes instead of meat, plan to cook 2-3 hours longer or cook on high as they will take longer to cook.
  • Serve with cornbread or a good homemade bread.
  • Use ground beef, turkey, or hot sausage. For vegetarian or vegan, use yams or sweet potatoes. You can even make it without, for a more soup-like chili.
  • Also optional: chopped peppers, onions, or tomatoes.
