    Default Cheater chili


    I love to make this when there is a time crunch. Only 3 ingredients and and you can eat it in less than 20 minutes.

    Chili

    1/2 - 1 lb. ground beef(depending on how much you like)
    2 cans of chili beans
    1 16 oz. jar of salsa(you can choose the degree of hotness)

    Brown beef. Add beans and salsa. Bring to just below boiling. Simmer if you like to blend the flavors even more.

    This can be made even more quickly if you have precooked beef crumbles that you have frozen. This amount will serve at least 3 or 4 people(I've got a hubby and teenager) but you could add a can of juice and it would serve even more. That would make it even cheaper per serving.

    Fast & Cheap, great Idea, thank you! I always serve chili with fresh cornbread, they go together like peas and carrots.

    I'll try this. You don't drain the chili beans, right?

Size:  15.6 KB Chili beans are the ones that are in the sauce already, they're not really in a liquid like regular canned beans.
    ~Enjoy!~

    Chili Magic works wonderfully also. Just add your browned ground meat and tomatoes, and voila-you've got chili. It comes in at least three different flavors and heat levels.
