“This recipe came from a desperation meal. People were coming by at dinnertime and I made a smallpot of chili. Unusual for me, I knew this would not be enough so ran to the store and grabbed 6 cans of chili beans with the sauce, and voila a spiffed up super simple chili. I saved the original and froze it for another day. I am sure I could have added them together but did not. Very simple and versatile recipe. NOTE*** Add in any type of meat you choose. I have also made with ground turkey meat. This is a go to recipe for a quick and substantial meal.; BUDGET friendly”
