Chili is one of my top comfort foods. Perfect for either summer or winter.  Spicy, creamy goodness. 
I love to spend hours making a complex flavored pot of chili, but sometimes I just want a quick and easy chili to toss over hot dogs or to make a super easy supper by adding leftover rotisserie chicken.
This 30-minute chili is super easy to make and perfect for getting a hearty meal on the table any night of the week.

Notes

 
 

Chili Additions:

It's easy to add leftover veggies, chicken, roast pork or even leftover steak to customize your chili.
Since this is a quick cooking chili it's best to use precooked meat and vegetables or quick cooking veggies.  Add meat about 5 minutes before the chili is done to just warm the meat, but not overcook it and make it tough.
