Tex-Mex Chili ($10 meal)

Tex Mex Chili

Love me some Chili. However I am not a big fan of chili with Kidney Beans.
My Mom would cook chili with beans, I would eat it and not complain, because I was a good kid like that. I would sift the chili in my mouth and spit out the kidney beans in my napkin. Ewwwww.

When I created this recipe for SweetBay Supermarket I wanted a different take on the normal chili.

A taco take! Β This would be perfect to have on the stove for “The Big Game” coming up!
This is a chunky chili filled with corn, black beans and taco seasoning. YUM
Serve it with some easy to make Boxed corn bread with some corn thrown in there.

    Made this last night…. again picky husband loved it. Quick, simple and so good! Because I had the meat, cheese, tomato sauce and the spices already, it only cost around $5.
