Super Easy Black Bean Chili

Super Easy Black Bean Chili

by Erin Taylor

This chili is super fast, super easy, and super good! Make some on a cold night and serve with your favorite cornbread and honeybutter! (I use Marie Callendar's brand!)
Easy Mexican Salad recipe follows using same chili! It's delicious!!!

1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 can corn (drained)
1 can black beans (red beans would work, too, but black has more flavor!)
2 C. water
2 tsp. chopped garlic (or garlic powder)
1 Tbsp. ground Cumin
1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
Salt and pepper

Brown the meat in a pot. (making this all in one pot saves dishes!)Drain any excess fat. Add contents of cans, garic, and seasonings. Let simmer for about 10 minutes. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and shredded cheese.

*hint- this chili is PERFECT as an Easy Mexican Salad! Crumble corn tortilla chips onto a plate. Top with shredded lettuce. Pour chili over the top. Add shredded cheese, sour cream,sliced olives, and salsa. Enjoy!!!
