Easy, versatile recipe for great chili with minimal effort. I like it because there is little time in the morning while I am rushing to work, and it is ready as soon as I get home.

  1. At bedtime add one jar of your favorite salsa (mild, medium or Hot) to the stew beef.

  3. In the morning Stir the mixture.
  4. Add the beans, diced tomatoes, roasted red peppers and chili powder.
  5. Add water if you like a thinner chili.

  7. To serve, top with onion, cheese and goldfish crackers.
  8. I have used chicken breast instead of beef. It needs to be shredded in the morning.
