I really love my beans and I always keep my pantry stocked with different kinds of canned beans(I especially love black and red kidney beans), so that I can use them when I have nothing in the refrigerator or running out of time. Canned beans are so convenient and don’t require any prior planning.

I know there are a few million recipes for making Chili and this is my quick and easy version.

Recipe Notes

This can be served over Yellow spanish rice, white rice, baked potato, nachos...... Using refried beans makes the chili thicker (you can completely omit this). This chili can be made with any kind of beans - red kidney, pinto.....

  1. Chili is the first dish I liked in a restaurant in US !!!! It reminded India for me.. kind of like a stew and filling. This was until i knew it had beef…

    Your version looks absolutely delicious !!!!! Thanks for participating in FMR and see you in the round up
    Cheers

  2. Black bean chili recipe sounds yummy. I wanted to let u know that some brands of black beans contain meat. So be sure to check the ingredient label.

  3. Hi Revathi,
    Initially I thought chili can only made with beef, until I saw Rachel ray making vegetarian version..
    Thanks for stopping by.

    Thank you for your comments Pushpa..

    Hi Shobitha,
    Thanks for mentioning abt meat in canned beans. I was told abt that by a friend and since then have always checked the label before buying..
