11 Minute Alphabet Chili

In the interest of accuracy, this chili took 11 minutes and 9 seconds to prep from start to finish.  231 previous chilis had me well-seasoning and ready for this moment.  Not to totally brag, but I’ve got some seriously rad cooking quicks.  Haste may make waste but the only casualty suffered tonight was a slightly damp floor and a chili splotch on the stove handle.    We’re still waiting for the sonic boom to rock Casa de Chili.




1 lb ground beef

7 oz alphabet noodle

1 can tomato soup

1 C vegetable juice

2 T chili powder

½ T paprika

1 t cumin

1 can kidney beans (drained)

2/3 C chopped onions

¼ C diced pickled jalapenos




  1. Brown ground beef and drain.
  2. While beef is cooking, cook noodles according to package directions.
  3. To the drained beef, add soup, juice, chili, powder, paprika, cumin.  Simmer briefly on high heat.
  4. Add beans, onions, jalapenos, and simmer briefly.
  5. Add cooked and drained noodles and serve.

Tasting Notes:


This was one for the ages.  Not only was it ready in lightning fast time, it tasted excellent.  The old stand-by ingredients sure know how to charm.  Throw in alphabet noodles and the whole family was all smiles.  The ITP raved about tonight’s meal.    It scored higher than all but a few of year’s chili offerings. 


I feel the need, the need for another bowl of 11 minute alphabet chili.
