Recipe by Alexander Miller

A fast and easy chili for those on a tight budget, without much time for cooking. It's also good for a quick sample of those chiles fresh from the garden! Makes 3-4 servings

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat contents of 3 cans in a 2 quart pot over medium heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in garlic and spices.
  3. 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.
  4. When the desired consistency is achieved serve the chili in bowls. Keep in mind that it will thicken as it cools.
  5. Leftovers should cool to room temperature then be refrigerated.
