You'll need just five ingredients to stir up this quick-and-easy chili from Jane Bone of Cape Coral, Florida. "We like to use medium salsa for zippy flavor, but sometimes I use half mild and half medium," she notes. "Sprinkle hearty servings with shredded cheddar cheese and other tasty toppings," Jane suggests.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) salsa
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (5-1/2 ounces) tomato juice
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, chopped green peppers, sour cream and thinly sliced green onions, optional

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, cook the beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the salsa, beans and tomato juice; heat through. Serve with the cheese, peppers, sour cream and onions if desired.
Editor's Note
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
