Chili with Beans

I love dishes that I can make in one pot and serve with bread and a salad, and Chili with Beans is one of those. It comes together very quickly and then cooks for about 30 minutes. When I was putting this recipe together I thought about using dry beans, but to be honest, I have never used dry beans and I find that the canned beans make this recipe easy. I drain them and rinse them really good, as to get some of the sodium out.

I also thought about the people that would be making this (you, the readers) and I thought you would prefer an easier and faster version. I have not been feeling all that great lately and am always looking to make dinner as quick and easy as possible. I was recently diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. I have started taking meds and I am still getting all of that worked out. I just started a blog about my health, you can find it at www.keepcalmandtakeyourmeds.com.

You can change this recipe up, too. Instead of ground beef you could use ground chicken or turkey. Adding an orange, yellow, or red bell pepper would give it a bit of a different flavor also. You can change up the beans and brand/type of seasoning. You could also season it yourself, but I find the seasoning packet much easier than buying each individual ingredient.

I like to serve this Chili with a hearty corn muffin. I used to buy a packaged muffin mix, but last time I made Corn Oat Muffins and I will be making these every time from now on. This Chili also makes a great Frito pie!

    I am going to try your recipe tonight. But i am going to use dear meat instead of ground beef. I think it will go great with your recipe. Thank you so much for the tip.

      That sounds great, there are a few of deer hunters in the family, so I might have to hit them up for some meat! Let me know how it turns out.
