Two-Minute Chili

This recipe is so simple. I love simple. Too many days start hectic and end hectic. I often find myself  in a frenzy around dinnertime, needing a recipe that will nourish my family in a matter of minutes. On that note, this recipe delivers in a big way. I almost always have the ingredients on hand. It’s easy to stock up on tomato sauce and pork-and-beans because they are such cheap staples to keep in the pantry.  A can of tomato sauce is less than a dollar, and pork-and-beans are usually a measly 59 cents.  Plus, my children are quickly satisfied by this mild chili.  They ask for it a lot and our budget is thankfully happy to oblige.  Cheap, tasty, and snappy. Ten Minute Chili is the ideal answer to the question: “Quick! What’s for dinner?”

Two Minute Chili
3 can pork & beans
1 can tomato sauce
2 T. chili powder
1 T. cumin
1 T. onion powder
1 t. garlic salt
½ c. sour cream
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely diced
¼ tsp. smoked paprika
Pinch of salt
Chopped cilantro for garnish
½ c. sharp cheddar

In a large pot, combine the first 6 ingredients. Heat over medium high heat until very hot. In a small bowl, stir together sour cream, chipotle pepper, paprika and a pinch of salt. Serve hot chili with a dollop of chipotle sour cream, cilantro, and cheddar.  Ideal with buttered saltine crackers.
