Quick And Easy Mild Chili – Perfect Weeknight Dinner For Not Much Money!

A fast dinner that is tasty and satisfying. This is how I make chili when it’s cold out and I want something hot and comforting!

I have tried many “from scratch” recipes for chili and always go back to the McCormick seasoning packets when I want chili right now!!!

This is good with crackers and cheese, or macaroni (chili mac) or crunch up Fritos with sour cream too. I often serve corn bread on the side
