This is a great recipe for a quick four ingredient chili for those cold nights when the kids have hockey or any sport and you have to run around! Of course, adding cheese and onions if you have time will enhance this meal, as will saltine crackers. Enjoy!

We added some tomato sauce and this recipe turned out really well. Particularly for those who don't do spicy foods well or for young children who don't need spicy foods yet. We really enjoyed this chili. Read More

This was ok for trying to make something fast for lunch. Added extra seasonings along with onion garlic etc. but the flavors just didn't have time to blend in thirty minutes. Thanks for the post. Read More

Loved it and so did my family. The only changes I made was I seasoned my ground beef before cooking with salt pepper garlic salt red pepper flakes and paprika. I added sour cream cheddar cheese and chives to the final dish. It was delicious!! Read More

Very good! I made a few basic changes. I seasoned my ground beef when cooking it added half a can of broccoli and cheese soup and threw in half a package of rotini pasta to the mix. Turned out very flavourful for me like homemade Hamburger Helper! Easy to make and will definitely be a favourite recipe of mine. Read More

I added chopped onion and garlic to this and also provided cheese to sprinkle on top after it was served in a bowl. Maybe I did something wrong but I would have liked a thicker chili. Also it just wasn't spectacular. Good and I'd eat it again but not something that is amazing. Read More
