Award Winning Chili

So, I entered our company Halloween chili contest and WON for the vegetarian category. Yep, DMP's cooking skills paid off (he prepped and assembled, I heated it up and stirred). So, if you are interested, here is my AWARD WINNING Super Chili:

4 cans of beans (your choice) rinsed and drained

1 16 oz bottle of salsa

1 small can of tomato sauce (you know, the really little ones?)

1 regular can of diced tomatoes w/ juice (I used chipotle ones)

1 can cream of mushroom soup

8 oz of velveeta cheese, in chunks

About ½ c. chopped onion

About ½ c. chopped green pepper

Cayenne and Chili powder to taste (I think DMP added 1 tsp of each?)

Dump everything in a pot and bring it to a boil then turn the temp down and let it simmer for 30 min or until melted and heated through. Or, if you prefer, you can put it in the crock pot on low for 3-4 hrs. (or high for 2).

That’s it. It is really good with tortilla chips, saltine crackers, cheese, sour cream and etc.
