"This chili earned its blue ribbon at a chili cook-off three years in a row! It is a mild, sweet chili, but it could always be spiced up with a little hot sauce. In Wisconsin, chili has macaroni noodles in it, which my husband thinks is the best part of this recipe. Enjoy! Add canned kidney beans with the macaroni, if desired."

  1. Place ground beef into a large soup pot over medium heat. Cook the beef until it begins to lose its pink color, about 8 minutes, breaking the meat up into crumbles as it cooks; stir in celery, red bell pepper, and onion. Continue to cook until the beef is browned, about 8 more minutes. Drain excess fat.
  2. Stir in diced tomatoes, tomato juice, water, chili powder, brown sugar, and beef bouillon cubes; cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir in the macaroni, and continue simmering until the pasta is tender, 10 to 15 more minutes.



Definitely easy, and very mild. I personally added a lot more seasoning but I was using a full lb of pasta, so that may be why it needed more flavoring. I forgot the red bell pepper so I went ...

Very good.I didn't have tomato juice do I subbed 3 oz of paste and a cup of water. Loved the flavor of this chili. Sweet with a subtle kick. I did add 1 tbs of garlic powder to the meat (turkey).

I used Ro*Tel Original diced tomatoes to spice it up. Loved this recipe.

My family loves this one. I find it WAY too salty with all that bouillon so I just use 2. My kids don't like lots of spice so I cut the chili powder in half (though I think it would be good with...

I made this tonight. I love chili, but my children don't like beans or spicy food, so the mild flavor and the noodles were a good alternative. I would classify this more as home made beef-a-roni...

I added kidney beans and hot peppers. This is a delicious recipe.

I liked this chili and my picky husband did too!
