You know those day’s when you literally don’t have ten minutes to yourself and you’ve been running around like a crazy person & all of the sudden it’s 4pm and you realize you forgot about dinner? This recipe is for those days. I always keep the ingredients in the pantry just in case. It’s gluten free, can be made vegan & the easiest meal you will ever make.
1 pound hamburger meat (omit meat for vegan version)
1 15 ounce can pinto beans, juice and all
1 15 ounce can kidney beans, drained
1 15 ounce can black beans, drained
1 15 ounce can tomato sauce
1 15 ounce can diced tomatoes (optional)
1 packet Simply Organic Vegetarian chili mix or your other favorite chili seasoning (If you are very strict about gluten please check the packages to make sure they fit your dietary restrictions.)
Brown hamburger in a large pot. Add chili seasoning and stir into meat. (If you’re not using meat skip this step and add seasoning to pot with all other ingredients.) Add undrained pinto beans, kidney beans, black beans, tomato sauce & diced tomatoes. Simmer for as little as 15 minutes before serving. I keep mine in the pot simmering on low for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring occasionally. If you want to prepare the chili early and keep it on the stovetop for a few hours, put a lid on it and keep it on very low stirring periodically.
