Online Extra: Alisa’s Favorite Chili

This is easy and yummy. I serve it at a lot parties and everyone wants the recipe. The enchilada sauce is the unique ingredient.


3 lbs. lean ground beef

1 large onion, chopped

2 cans (15 oz. each) Ranch Style Beans*

2 cans (20 oz. each) enchilada sauce

1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes

½ tsp. chili powder

½ tsp. cumin


Brown the ground beef and chopped onion together. Drain any grease and place mixture in a large cooking pot. Stir in beans, enchilada sauce, diced tomatoes, chili powder, and cumin (add more seasoning to taste if desired). Simmer until thickened. Serve with grated cheese and bread. Serves 8-10.

Note: Ranch Style Beans are a brand name of baked beans that are found easily in most grocery stores.
