Stock up on canned beans, corn and tomatoes for super-fast, one-pot meals.

Ingredients

Canola oil

1 tsp(s)

Garlic clove(s)

1 clove(s), medium, minced

Stewed tomato(es)

14½ oz

Canned kidney beans

15 oz, rinsed and drained

Canned yellow corn

15¼ oz, drained

Canned tomato sauce

15 oz

Chili powder

1 tbsp(s)

Dried oregano

½ tsp(s)

Crushed red pepper flakes

½ tsp(s)

Dehydrated onion flakes

¼ cup(s)

Black pepper

¼ pinch

Low-fat shredded cheddar cheese

4 tbsp(s), sharp variety

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large, nonstick, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until aromatic, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, beans, corn, tomato sauce, chili powder, oregano, red pepper flakes, onion and pepper; stir well.
  2. Increase heat to high and bring chili to a boil; cook, stirring frequently, until chili is thick and flavours are concentrated, about 5 minutes. Spoon into serving bowls and sprinkle with cheese.

Notes

Use a heavy pot or the chili can burn easily. If it starts to stick to the pan, reduce the heat and stir constantly.
