Frisch's Big Boy Chili

In Cincinnati is a restaurant chain called Frisch's Big Boy Restaurants. They serve a yummy double-decker hamburger called the "Big Boy" and they serve a luscious chili. This is a copycat version, which tastes very much like Frisch's original.

Recipe Ingredients

1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 (10 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
1 (10 ounce) soup can water
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
3 teaspoons chili powder (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 (15 ounce) can red kidney beans

Add tomato soup, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, salt and sugar. Mix well. Simmer for one hour.
