Some of my friends have asked for an easier chili recipe, that still has lots of authentic flavor. I think this one will work. It uses ingredients most people have on hand. The enchilada sauce can be replaced with a chili-flavored tomato sauce if you don't keep enchilada sauce on hand.

    ro-tel diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 1-2 Tbsp
    chili powder

How to Make OK, Easy Tasty Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown the ground chuck with the onion in a dutch oven until it is very brown and crumbly.
  2. Stir in Ro-tel, chili powder, cumin, and salt. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in enchilada sauce and beans with liquid. Bring back to a simmer and cook about 20 minutes.
    For a great homemade taste, place chili in a dutch oven in your oven set to 250° and bake for 1 hour. Or, turn into a crock pot set on high for at least 2 hours.
  4. This recipe can be enhanced with a couple of ethnic ingredients, which not all people keep on hand, but really add a lot of flavor to chili.
    1 > for extra heat, stir in 1/2 to 1 small can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.
    2 > if there are a lot of guys waiting to eat this chili, stir in a bottle of dark beer at the beginning of step 3.
    3 > you may add 1-2 packages of Sazon Goya con Azafran during step 2.
