Chili Beef Soup

Updated December 29, 2016

Should you make chili or soup? Can't decide? This is where Chili Beef Soup comes to the rescue! It's basically an extra-hearty chili-style soup with tasty add-ins like beans and corn. We especially like to make this "chili soup" during the cooler months of the year.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 (16-ounce) can kidney beans, undrained
  • 1 (8-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot over medium heat, brown ground beef and onion 5 to 7 minutes. Add remaining ingredients; mix thoroughly.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, 30 minutes, or until heated through.
  • Plus, if you're looking for more ways with ground beef, then you should definitely browse our collection of Ground Beef Recipes.

Easy and quick to make. Better than I expected. I'll be making this regularly.

This one is a keeper, as is!

I use the same recipe and add corn and small potatoes. SHIPWRECK CHILI

Very good soup

Very good soup! Easy to make plus I had all the ingredients on hand. They only thing I did differently was add macaroni. Will definitely be making this again.

My kids love it, I servered it with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

I used a can of mexicorn for a different taste.

I have made this Chili Beef Soup a few times. t is easy and very, very good. My family and friends LOVE it!!!!!

I take the chili after a couple of days when it is thicker, put in over spaghetti and make chili 3 ways.

Anybody who would put corn in chili should be boiled in a pot of it!

That's funny, but so true. Corn is out of place in chili.

Iv'e had chili soup for lunch the last two days. I made regular chili three days ago and refrigerated two jars of left-over chili. At night my son eats most of a jar and leaves me about a cup. To get it all out of the jar I add a little water which thins it out so I now have chili soup. I heat it up in the microwave with left-over elbow macaroni. I always cook a pot of macaroni when I make chili, though my son prefers crackers. To make up for having thinned it out, I add extra seasonings like Cajun seasoning, paprika, chili powder, cumin whatever you like and sometimes a spoon of yogurt or sour cream. I haven 't tried adding corn yet.

When I end up with chili or soup that is too thin I add barley, brown rice and I've even used oatmeal to thicken it This doesn't compromise the flavor and adds nutrition. L.D.

excellent chili. i thoroughly enjoyed and so easy to make. Gracias.

excellent chili. it was great! Thank you.
