- 1 (10 ounce) can Rotel diced tomatoes, with lime and cilantro (Ro Tel brand)
- 1 (16 ounce) can dark red kidney beans (Bush's Best brand)

- 1 teaspoon onion, minced
- Heat contents of 3 cans in a 2 quart pot over medium heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Stir in garlic and spices.
- Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for at least half an hour. Stir often enough to prevent a layer of skin forming on top. You may also wish to mash the beans during this time.
- When the desired consistency is achieved serve the chili in bowls. Keep in mind that it will thicken as it cools.
- Leftovers should cool to room temperature then be refrigerated.
