Chili is a staple in our household especially during the cold winter months. I love that I can make it quick on the stove top or let it simmer all day long in the slow cooker. Either way, I’m lucky if there is any left for me to use as a topping on say a Chili Hotdog or Baked Potato – or even a small serving for lunch. This quick and easy Chili Recipe with Beans brings everyone to the table.
So Simple Chili with Beans recipe
- 1 28 ounce can of Red Gold Crushed Tomatoes
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 package of chili seasoning mix (Mind was medium by McCormick)
- 1 can of Red Kidney Beans
- Brown the ground beef.
- All all other ingredients and simmer on stovetop for about 35 minutes.
- You can double the recipe by adding 1 15 ounce can of Red Gold Crushed and 1 Can of Chili Kidney Beans.
- This was for small servings or topping on nachos.
- Yield - 4½ cup servings
- Top with your choice of toppings. It's that easy!
Consider topping with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, onions and add some cornbread on the side. It’s also thick enough to enjoy as Chili Nachos and top it off with Queso and Guacomole.
