Camper's Chili

Make a hearty chili following the tip for precooking the ground beef. Ready-to-add canned extras are all that's needed.



  1. In 2-quart saucepan, cook beef, onion and salt over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.

Prep Time: 20 min | Total Time: 20 min | Makes: 6 servings

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): No change.

Cook the ground beef ahead and freeze. Pack in the cooler and it will be campfire-ready to make the chili.
