This is a microwave recipe that my dad used to make that I prefer cooked on the stove. It comes together really quickly and you have tasty chili in less than an hour. Then I put it in bread bowls and top in with cheese and onion. My favorite bakery makes bread bowls that are just the right size and not super huge so that we actually have room left in our tummies to eat the bowl too!
