20 minute chili…

Seeing it’s Sunday, freezing cold outside, and chili is the #1 game day eat at our house, whipping it up this afternoon seemed like a no brainer!

When I make chili I admit, I use canned everything because I find it to be quick and I like the end result.  After it’s put together I let it simmer all afternoon on the stove top but you can also transfer it into a crock pot and just keep it on low as well until people are ready to eat.

I also only use wooden spoons when I make chili because I think it makes it taste better.


adding refried beans really helps to thicken it & the fresh cilantro makes it look pretty as well as enhances the flavor.


I love the little something extra that fresh cilantro adds to the recipe.


I use a lot of cumin because I’m obssed with it…and cilantro.


eat right away or keep on simmer until ready


I love dipping blue corn chips in mine!
