Our favorite chili recipe is so quick and easy…just like the name. It only uses five ingredients….yes five! And it doesn’t take that long to make. You might notice many of my recipes are “quick and easy”… I am a fan of those kinds of recipes. With life being so busy…when it’s not busy, I want to enjoy our family time. So, I really do try to have recipes that are quick and easy to make and taste delicious!
When I make chili, I like to use meatloaf mix which is a mix of ground beef and pork. Just seems to give it a little extra zing. But using ground beef will work also. You just need to brown the meat and drain off the excess fat. Then add in the salsa, sauce and water. Sprinkle in the chili seasoning which will give the chili the delicious flavor. Yumm! Stir everything together well. Let it simmer for about 15 minutes. And there you have it, a quick and easy dinner recipe for your family! Sometimes we add a little shredded mozzarella cheese once served in the bowl.
I recently made this chili in breadbowls. Sooo yummy! It is a perfect dinner for those chilly winter days.
