Stuff Over Chips

2 pounds Ground Beef
4 cans (15 Oz. Size) Bush's Chili Beans In Mild Sauce
1 can Tomato Sauce, 14.5 Oz
1 dash Chili Powder (optional)
Optional For Serving: Shredded Cheese, Tortilla Chips, Shredded Lettuce, Diced Tomatoes, Sour Cream, Salsa, Etc


1. Brown ground beef in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat (feel free to season the meat to taste and add onion, if thats how you roll). 2. Drain the meat in a colander to get rid of excess grease. 3. Open the 4 cans of chili beans. Drain 2 of the cans. 4. Return ground beef to skillet. 5. Add chili beans and tomato sauce to ground beef and stir until combined. 6. Add a dash or two of chili powder (optional- this really comes down to how much heat you like). 7. Cook on medium-high heat until mixture begins to boil. 8. Reduce heat to low and allow chili to simmer for 5 minutes. At this point, your chili is complete and you are ready to assemble your meal: 1. Spread chip base out across an individual size plate. 2. Top chips with the chili. 3. Add Stuff! This is the part best left up to each persons taste palate. My family likes the basics: shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream and salsa. But if you like jalapenos, black olives, onion etc., have at it. Experiment with your chip preferences and topping options. We like Doritos and if were aspiring to healthier options, something organic or whole grain. Personally, I think freshly grated cheddar cheese is the way to go. That being said, we frequently just use the shredded cheese from for the sake of convenience. Feel free to take this and make it your own! (Makes yummy leftovers... should you have any.)
