You'll need just five ingredients to stir up this quick-and-easy chili from Jane Bone of Cape Coral, Florida. "We like to use medium salsa for zippy flavor, but sometimes I use half mild and half medium," she notes. "Sprinkle hearty servings with shredded cheddar cheese and other tasty toppings," Jane suggests.

"When its cold out this is my go to Chili. I

double the recipe & make it with ground turkey instead of ground beef. I use black beans instead. Its true what the other person said all the flavors are in the salsa."

"Great taste, and easy to make! It has an easy clean-up, and any salsa works. You don't need to add spices, they're already in the salsa."
