Time-Easing Taco Chili

When I have leftover fixings from tacos, I use them as a starter for spicy chili. In a pot, I combine the seasoned meat, salsa, refried beans, and chopped onions and tomatoes. I add a can of chili beans and a bit of seasoning if needed. I cook the mixture until it’s thick, then serve it with broken taco shells (or tortilla chips) and shredded cheese. —Catherine Housman, Evansville, Indiana
