I love to cook, but meals at my house have to be ready in a hurry because we're always on the go. I found this recipe in a magazine almost 30 years ago.

"Good chili - enough kick - but not too much. Good flavor! I don't like kidney beans and the pinto beans are perfect. I did not add as much onion - but added everything else. Very good!"
