CHILI SOUP

Here is a great old standby for those chilly days!!!!

Chili Soup

2 cans dark red kidney beans
1 can water
1 quart of tomato juice (I use my home canned, from the store works fine)
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 lb hamburger
1 small onion
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp white sugar
1 tsp chili powder

Brown hamburger, onion and salt in a large saucepan. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer and let cook for another 30 minutes or longer (it doesn't hurt to simmer a long time as it only makes it better). Sometimes my family likes me to stir in about 2 Tablespoons of dry barley and cook with the other ingredients.

We sometimes serve this with a little cheese or sour cream on the top. YUM!!!
