My family loves chili beans. I like to make them when it cold and gloomy,like today.I serve chili beans with cornbread or corn chips.My son & husband pile on the toppings,use your favorites.
For a quicker version,use can beans and ground beef only. I like to cook my own beans from scratch though.
You can add cumin if you like,my family and I don't care for it.
