Rush Hour Chili

It takes a lot to make chili great. This just doesn't have it. It is definitely "rush hour"--as in something quick you can make when you have a bunch of stuff and need to get dinner ready. Nothing extraordinary for the palate.

Rush-Hour Chili-Adapted from Pillsbury's Fast & Healthy Cookbook
Total Time: 20 Minutes
Serves 4

  • 3/4 lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
  • 1 can (15.5 or 15 oz) kidney beans, drained, rinsed 
  • can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • can (6 oz) tomato paste
  • cups cold water
  • teaspoons chili powder

In 3-quart nonstick saucepan or Dutch oven, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain if necessary.
Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot.
