In my opinion, there's nothing more comforting than a bowl of chili. In one portion you have a complete meal with its mix of beans, meats and vegetables. I like to make chili regularly and I always have cans of beans and tomatoes in my cupboard. I only need to add one different ingredient to change the flavor because chili is incredibly versatile, not to mention a very economic dish. From start to finish, this chili is ready in only 45 minutes and the chile ancho gives it a slight kick. Best of all, it costs approximately $2 per portion to prepare. I hope you like it!

Expert Tips

  • If you don't have black beans on hand, use pinto beans instead.
  • I recommend opening all the cans so they're ready to add to the chicken as soon as it's cooked and golden-brown.
