Canned soup and beans are the secrets to the recipe's rapid preparation. For even faster meal making brown, drain and freeze the ground beef when time allows. When ready to use, just combine frozen cooked beef with the other ingredients and simmer as directed.—Jean Ward, Montogomery, Texas

"This is our favorite chili recipe now...I use canned baked beans, canned black beans and add some frozen corn. I make lots and freeze in small containers for my guys to take to work for lunches."

"Fast, cheap and excellent taste. I have 4 kids and a picky husband who all gave this a thumbs up. Add some cheddar cheese on top for garnish with a side of cornbread for a cold winter's night delight."
