30-Minute Chili

On a brisk day, I don't think anything is more appealing than a steaming bowl of this zesty chili. I always make enough so that everyone can have seconds.—Susan Strout, Cheney, Washington

    This recipe was really quick and easy to make. My husband loved it. I gave it four stars only because it was a little sweet for me. I tend to like a little more heat.

    This is my husbands favorite chilli recipe! The only thing I do different is add a can of chilli ready diced tomatoes. This is a frequently made dish at our house!
