Two favorite comfort foods come together in this super easy, on-pot dish that the whole family will go crazy for!

You can substitute 3/4 cup each of white and red kidney beans, drained and rinsed if you don't care for the chili and pinto beans OR a combination of 2 of your favorites including black beans.

You can also substitute 14.5 oz of diced tomatoes and green chilies for a different taste option as well.
