I am a big fan of football. Comfort food is always a hit when you have friends over for the big game. This is a lighter and faster way to eat chili. It was a big hit with my company too.

    Add broth and let low simmer to cook the beans. Add water. Take the last can of beans and green chiles mashed up and add to the chili. This will thicken up the chili. Cook, covered, on medium to low for about 1 hour, longer if beans are not done to your taste. Keep stirring and tasting as you go.
