Chili Con Carne in a Flash

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

I know, some people might take offense to this cheater's version of chili preparation. Believe me, I do have my recipe for traditional, slow-cooking chili. But this is for those nights when you don't have much on hand and you're hungry. It sure beats peanut butter and jelly then!

Top Review by Annacia

I used veggie crumbles for the beef, crushed tomatoes for the soup and Mexican seasoning for the chili powder. That said, this was some excellent chili. It's thick, hearty and really tummy filling as well as delicious. I'll make this again even when I have plenty of time. :D
