How to Make Cheese Enchilada Chili


  1. Start by sauteing peppers and onion to soften.
    Add cumin and chili pwder with salt and pepper, toast for a minute.
    Add ground beef, cook through.
  2. All ingredients approximate with cans and handfulls. Add to Your liking. I cook dried beans and keep in baggies, for recipes like this.
    Start by adding Your canned tomatoes and sauces. I turn down to a medium heat to simmer for about 25 minutes.
  3. Next add in Your extra beans and corn, continue cooking for another 15min Stir in Your cheese.
    Your chili is done and ready to serve. I like topping with a lime sour cream and more cheese. Add shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes for a true Enchilada!
