Is chili made with or without beans? That is one question that is nearly as divisive as politics and religion. We’re not sure there’s a right or wrong answer to this question, but we do prefer our chili with beans….lots of beans!

I grew up in a household where chili was bean-less and more like sloppy joes. Mom often served it with cornbread and we’d eat it like it was our last meal. But, when we moved south I was introduced to chili with beans, Frito pies and hot dogs smothered in chili. My life has never been the same since.

If you’re on “Team Chili With Beans” you’ll enjoy this simple recipe that you can have on the table in 30 minutes or less. Two pounds of lean ground beef, taco seasoning and ten cans (technically 9 cans and a jar) of chili fixin’s, are all that’s needed to make this tasty meal. Serve with cheese, sour cream, corn chips, or whatever your little heart desires.
