Stovetop skillet cooking is especially handy for quick meals. This dinner will only take a few minutes to prepare but it rewards with a big bold taste. Serve it up for a weekend meal along with a tossed green salad and you will have a sure winner.

Absolutley wonderful. a real winner for us! Quick, easy, tasty and on the table in a flash.......why bother making chili any other way! I had to adjust the heat, as my husband is a bit of a wimp when it comes to chili, but I just added some hot chili sauce on my plate! Served this with grated cheese, chopped green onions and tortilla chips.........DELICIOUS thanks! Made for PAC Autumn 2009 - such a wonderful recipe, thanks! FT:-)
