Ten-Second Chili

27 Oct

Well, okay not really but this chili is so unbelievably fast and easy to make, I even had time to blog about it! And we all know I’ve obviously been lacking the time and patience for that recently.

What you’ll need:

  • leftover taco meat
  • a jar spaghetti sauce (I used my Grandma’s homemade sauce! Yum!)
  • 1/2 can of kidney beans (no idea what you’ll do with the rest, so if you like them, throw ’em in!)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (I bought the store-brand chili ready ones, though I think Hunts Fired Roasted would be better)
  • 1 small can Mexican corn (I just really like it, but it’s optional)
  • Garlic powder to taste (optional)
  • Steak seasoning to taste (optional)

So dump your leftover taco meat into a medium to large pot and let it warm up.  While it’s doing this, drain your tomatoes and kidney beans and dump those into the pot.  I dumped the large things in first so they wouldn’t splash and get all over the stove.

Add in the Mexican corn if you’re using it & then cover it all with spaghetti sauce.  I added garlic powder (just a bit, use your judgement) and steak seasoning (same as the garlic powder, use your judgement) and let the whole thing simmer covered for about 15 minutes.

So technically it’s like…17 minute chili…but it’s super easy and quick, not to mention absolutely DELICIOUS.  I even had time to make some garlic toast (Bread + a little olive oil + garlic pepper seasoning into the oven til golden brown) to make a quick and hearty meal, perfect for this miserable Happy Valley weather!

So grab a cup of chili and stay warm!

WE ARE…
