Melissa's Last Minute Chili

Submitted by: MPALMER15
Melissa's Last Minute Chili

Introduction

My daughter and I threw this together in 45 minutes when our dinner plans were derailed. It turned out to have loads of flavor and was so easy to make. My kids poured theirs over rice for more carbs, but this chili is good and filling by itself. My daughter and I threw this together in 45 minutes when our dinner plans were derailed.

    I think you have made a hugh mistake in your potassium mg., pinto beans alone are at least 1000 mg potassium per cup, I realize your cutting it but still isn't enough plus the onion and tomatoe. Check it out. thanks - 3/27/10
