Super Simple 10 Minute Five Bean Chili

Are you like me and always looking for a quick and easy recipe to pull together at the last minute?

I’m not the braggadocious type, but my 10 minute Five Bean Chili stole the show!

It was a little over a year ago when our church hosted a Chili cook-off that my husband turned to me and said, “Enter your chili!” Being new to the church, I was a bit hesitant, but I thought why not?

Little did I know that my dish would beat out the rest of the competition. I walked away with the bragging rights and a small prize. But that wasn’t the true seal of approval in my eyes.  

It had to pass the Dad test.

My father is an avid Chili connoisseur – even stating that if it is his choice, Chili would be his last meal.

We grew up just south of Cincinnati which is renown for it’s Chili with over 250 restaurants clamoring to be the best.

Chili was a staple in our home growing up and impressing my dad with this dish was a huge accomplishment!

So if you are short on time and need to get food ready fast – this recipe is the one you have to try!

We make this recipe at least once a month and we have 2 ways of serving it.

The first night I typically serve the bowl of chili, topped with cheese and sour cream and a dash of hot sauce if you like.

The next day, a Chili Cheese Burrito is served in a freshly cooked tortilla stuffed with cheese and chili.

It’s a great dish that lasts our family of four for a few days of leftovers.

I always have the ingredients on hand if I need to fix something fast. You can always serve half and freeze the other half for another day.

Either way, it’s sure to be a hit!

Let me know if you decide to try this recipe! I would love to hear your feedback and if  your family likes it.
