Black Bean Chili

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by KYGreek

This is the easiest chili recipe I've ever seen, and the result is fabulous. It's ready in 20 minutes, and makes enough to easily feed four. It's also very good made with ground turkey.

Wow - this has got to be the easiest yet still tasty chili I've ever tried! I used diced tomatoes instead of the tomato sauce, and a whole packet of chili seasoning mix instead of just 1 tsp (we like things HOT at my house). My husband loved it!
