It's that cozy, snowy time of year. What's better than to come inside from a cold day and eat some warm chili? Here is a cheap and easy recipe for a delicious meal that will fit into anyone's budget and schedule! 


  • 1 pound of ground beef (or turkey)
  • 3, 15 ounce cans of diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 2, 15 ounce cans of beans (you can choose from: black, kidney, or chili beans)
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • optional toppings: cheese and sour cream
