My husband and I work together and arrive home at the same time. So I appreciate quick and easy dishes like this. The nacho cheese topping is a great addition to a tasty chili. - Sally Roos, Osakis, Minnesota

"I enjoyed this chili a lot. It's super easy to make, which is key. I just used an oven-proof serving dish, mixed all the ingredients, and popped it in the oven! I omitted the ground beef. I do recommend using a mild salsa. I used hot salsa, which I normally love, but since you use the whole jar, the hot salsa was overwhelming."
