Quick Beef Chili and Corn Recipe

Tonight I prepared one of my 3-Month Food Storage Supply menus for my family. My husband said I could serve this to him anytime! The teens said it was okay, but wished the diced tomatoes weren’t in it. My 4 year-old ate her biscuit, and bites of roast beef and beans, minus everything else in the chili. Even so, this meal is a keeper for us, and so easy to prepare.

Quick Beef Chili and Corn
from Emergency Food in a Nutshell (great book!)

3 ½ c. soaked and cooked dry kidney beans OR
2 (15 oz.) can kidney beans, drained (I used 1 can kidney beans, 1 can pinto beans)
1 (15 oz.) can corn, drained
1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (12 oz.) can beef chunks, undrained and broken up
1 ½ c. water
1 c. chunky salsa
½ t. cumin
½ t. chili powder (optional)
½ t. sugar (if no sugar in canned corn)

Combine ingredients in pan and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serves 4 – 5 (actually 5 – 6 for us.)

I also prepared the baking powder biscuits from the Betty Crocker cookbook.

  1. Here are my resources for 12 oz. canned roast beef. Super Walmart sells it for $3.25. Amazon.com sells Hormel for $3.50 per can, and Libby for $3.22 (never tried Libby) and you can get free shipping if you spend more than $25.00. Most other grocery stores are about $4.50. This size is perfect for recipes.

  2. Wow, your blog is great! Do you mind if I link to it from our ward’s Relief Society blog? I know you have some personal family stuff on here as well, so I completely understand if you’d prefer that I not. But I appreciate all the information you have shared on here. It’s so helpful! Thanks, Debbie.

  3. Sounds like a great recipe. I would use this in my SolarOven.Question – where do you get canned beef chunks. I do have deydrated, but of course, that means extra water. We are trying to find emergency meals that require no water be added. Bellen
