Busy Day Chili with Beans

Nancy Andersen


I like to make this when I have had a busy day. It works well in the crockpot too. Just cook the meat first.

How to Make Busy Day Chili with Beans


  1. Cook the sausage and drain well. Add all other ingredients, mix well and bring to a simmer.

    (After the meat is cooked I put all of the ingredients in the crockpot and bring the heat up. If you are in a hurry, just use the stove).
  2. Serve with grated cheese, sour cream, tortilla chip or any other garnish you prefer.
