Easy Chili

Cooler weather has finally arrived in West Michigan which makes it a perfect time to serve up a big bowl of chili.  Although, soup or chili is good anytime of the year (in my opinion).

This is a mild and easy to make chili that can be ready in less than an hour.  However, if you want a spicier chili, add 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne powder when you add in the Seasoning Mix.

Quick and easy, this recipe uses a packet of McCormick Chili Seasoning Mix,  The sautéed diced onions and green bell peppers add a taste of freshness to the chili.

If you are looking for a quick and easy Chili recipe, this is the one to try.  Cheddar cheese is a great topping for the chili.

In a large skillet on medium-high heat, sauté the onions and diced bell pepper just till softened.  Add the ground beef.  Break it apart with a wooden spoon.  Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the beef is browned, stirring occasionally.  Drain the fat, if needed.

Stir in the Seasoning Mix, tomatoes, and beans.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Serve hot with assorted toppings, if desired.
