I make my chili with potatoes, at least my grandmothers' version of chili. It was her depression era chili. Fry up 1-1/2 lb. ground meat with a chopped onion. Drain. Add 2 cans tomato soup and 2 cans water. Add chilli powder and paprika to taste. Add 2 medium potatoes diced (not too small). Cook for about 30-45 minutes to thicken some and cook the potatoes. Add kidney beans and simmer for about 15 more minutes. This is my kind of comfort food! I never knew no one else didn't put potatoes in their chili for the longest time. We used to call it Polish Chili. I do make regular chili now but when I want comfort food this is what I make.
