Stir in hamburger and 2 cups of milk. Heat through.

1 can (28 0z) baked beans

1 can (10.75 oz) tomato soup

shredded cheddar

~  Brown hamburger with onion powder, salt and pepper.  Drain

In a big pot mix all ingredients except cheddar.  Cook on medium-low heat, until hot the whole way through.  Top with cheddar after serving.

This is also good if you cook white rice on the side and pour chili over once done.
