Easy Salsa Chili – Great for a Weeknight Meal

 

Easy Salsa Chili by virginiasweetpea.com

Whew!  It’s the first week back to work in 2015 and I’m already exhausted.  Two weeks off spoiled me and made me forget how tiring it is to get up early and to be on my feet all day working with young people.

 

When I finally get home in the evening I not only want a tasty dinner, but I want a dinner that doesn’t take a long time to prepare.  Easy Salsa Chili meets both of these requirements.

This chili is quick to prepare and can be ready to eat in less than thirty minutes.  It’s a dish that I’ll also make ahead of time for a busy week when I may not either feel like or have time to make dinner.

We normally don’t add cheese or sour cream to our chili but when we do, it is a wonderful added treat.

  1. What a great idea using the salsa as the base – all the tomato and all the Mexican flavour. I’m going to keep this in mind!!

      It is such an easy recipe, Heather. I like to keep the ingredients in the house for a night when I need dinner on the table quickly.
