5-ingredient Easy Chili

5-ingredient Easy Chili

Trying to get back into the swing of things can be hard especially after the long weekend. An easy, hearty recipes like 5-ingredient Easy Chili is exactly what you need.

My plan for tonight is to turn on Netflix, act like it is Sunday and cook 5-ingredient easy chili. It takes about 25 minutes and to make a full flavor chili without all the work. The rest of the evening will be spent on my new Netflix original, Making A Murderer.

If you are like me, you can’t just have classic chili for dinner. It needs to be paired with cornbread and to fulfill my 2016 eating healthy goal, a veggie.

5-Ingredient Easy Chili:

  • 1 lb. ground beef or turkey*
  • 3 (15 oz.) cans diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans beans, drained (black beans, kidney beans, a combo, or whatever you like)
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. Chili powder
  • (optional toppings: shredded cheese, chopped green onions, sour cream, cilantro, etc.)
