A hearty chili-based soup/stew.
Peel and chop potatoes into bite-sized chunks.
Chop onion to desired size.
Place chopped potatoes and onion into a large pot or dutch oven and add water. Cook on stove over medium-medium/high heat until potatoes are almost done (boiling approximately 8-10 minutes).
Add spaghetti, beef with vegetables and barley soup, and salt and pepper to taste. Bring back to a boil.
Add chili and simmer until done; stirring and scraping the bottom of the pot occasionally.
