Quick and easy chili recipe. This can be simmered on the stove for 30 to 40 minutes. Or, what I prefer to do is start it in a large skillet on the stove, then transfer the chili into a crock-pot, set temp. on "low", forget about it and go about my day. The longer the chili slow cooks, the tastier it gets. Just add a dollop of sour cream or grated cheddar cheese on top and serve with restaurant style tortilla chips and you have a hot, hearty meal.
