Amanda’s Award Winning Chili

My best friend Amanda made this chili for years in our old neighborhood and she won the best chili award every year so I decided to adopt the recipe as one of my own now! It’s so delicious and a little different from your typical chili. It has spaghetti noodles in it, different right? But it is so delish!


1 lb. ground beef

1 small onion, diced

1 packet chili seasoning

3 cans petite diced tomatoes

1 can tomato sauce

4 cans chili beans, drained and rinsed

Handful spaghetti noodles


  1. Saute ground beef until browned, drain.
  2. Add diced onion and let soften.
  3. Add chili seasoning, tomatoes, tomato sauce and beans.
  4. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 2-3 hours.
  5. About 20 minutes before serving, boil water and cook noodles to al dente.
  6. Add cooked spaghetti noodles to pot and serve.

This would be delicious with a spoonful of sour cream and a sprinkle of cheese! We always love our chili with some breadsticks too!

***I did the first 2 steps then added the seasoning and tomatoes to the pot and then I transferred it to a crockpot and added beans. I cooked it on high to give it that *simmer* It turned out great!

Nothing feels more like fall than chili!
