This is a meal that was introduced to me by my husband's family. At first, when I started making it after we got married, I though that it needed to be spicy. Like Mexican, right? However, I have since come to appreciate that this meal simply has its own unique flavor, and to mess with it is to mess with a classic. The perks of this dish?? Besides being yummy? Simple. Easy. Satisfying. Kid-friendly. Leftovers need not apply. (But if you get stuck with leftovers, it is just as yummy the next day!)
1 to 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 can Hormel chili with beans
1/4 cup water
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup vinegar
2 tbl. sugar
shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, taco chips
Brown hamburger in large skillet or stockpot and drain. Add all other ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.
To serve, crush taco chips in individual bowls and cover with sauce. Top with lettuce and cheese.
