5 Minute Chili
For that last minute need a meal on the table night… this is one of my most often used winter meals.
1 package meat (I always have 1 pound packages of browned, seasoned ground beef in freezer)
5 cans* of different whatever type beans you have (I keep stocked in black, red, chili, black-eye and white)
1 can or jar of spaghetti sauce
1 package chili season (or mix teaspoon of garlic powder, pepper, salt, cumin, chili powder)
Open and dump everything into a large pot. (may have to thaw meat in microwave for 60 seconds to break it up) – add one cup of HOT water and heat on medium heat until ready to eat.
Serves 6-8 large bowls. Add some bread and butter or a salad to the table and you are ready!
- We use 5 cans only because that is how many cans it takes to feed us. I have found one can of beans per adult works out just about right without leftovers.
