Jeanne's Chili

Brown 1+ pound ground beef with some chopped onion and celery.  Add 2 (16 ounce-ish) cans any brand BBQ style baked beans (I use Chili Starter), 2 (16 ounce) cans any brand tomato sauce. Add 1/2 can water for each can. (this  gets the last bits out of the cans), 1 beef bouillon cube.  Bring to a boil.  Simmer 15 minutes.
Add 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables, pinch of marjoram and thyme.  Add 1/2 tsp (more or less) red pepper flakes.  Simmer 15 minutes more.  This recipe is very forgiving. Measurements need not be perfect. Can add more or less.  Can top bowl of chili with shredded cheddar cheese or, my favorite, some Mac n' Cheese.
