A wonderful one-skillet meal that's very tasty, and even tastes better if left for next day

Sorry, Kittencal... out of all of the wonderful recipes of yours I have tried and liked, I have to give this one a pass. I don't know if it was the type of chili I used, or the kind of canned tomatoes I used, but I found this recipe to be bland and mostly flavorless. I was able to help it a bit with some salt and some Pace Hot, but overall, I didn't care for it.

Looking for a quick and satisfying meal? This is it! I also loved the fact that it calls for most of the ingredients that I usually have on hand anyway. I served a simple garden salad and the meal was complete. You did it again, Kittencal.

made this today, was a very good meal. Next time i'll jazzed it up a little, hmm maybe 1.5 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. The sour cream added a very nice next level of taste. Certainly was as said a full meal, wonderfull. thanks for sharing kittencal
