Why Is This The Kids Favorite Chili?

The kids love this chili because it doesn’t pack too much heat, only flavor. It only takes 40 minutes to bring this chili to life which makes dinner time much easier. This delicious chili is simple with only 10 ingredients. We enjoy it with chips or on top of hot dogs! 

Cut onions

First, cut up the onions. Then open up all the cans of beans and tomatoes. Next, sauté the onions until translucent, about 3 minutes. 
  open the cans of beans 

Next, add in sausage or ground beef with the seasonings and cook through for 12 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes.
