The easiest 5-ingredient chili you’ve ever made

This chili recipe is the perfect meal to make after a long day because it’s quick and easy comfort food using only five ingredients.

This is my kind of home cooking — quick, easy and tastes like it took a lot longer to make than it really did. Hunt’s® fire-roasted diced garlic tomatoes and ground chili powder work together to get the party started with this spicy one-pot meal.


Into the pan goes the tomatoes, cooked ground beef, onions and bell peppers — and guess what? Other than adding water, that’s it.


And, of course, salting to taste is a must. Enjoy this super-simple chili all by its lonesome or add your favorite toppings for good measure. Then, dig in and enjoy each and every bite.
