I have no clue as to why, but most canned chili beans have added wheat. This recipe makes a good replacement for canned chili beans, or it can simply be enjoyed in its own right. It’s super quick and easy and both my boys enjoy it.

Easy Chili Beans

Ingredients

  • 15 ounce can pinto beans or kidney beans OR 1-1/2 to 2 cups homecooked beans
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion
  • Dash black pepper
  • Dash red pepper
  • Salt to taste

Directions

Open up the beans. Empty them into a small saucepan. Add the remaining ingredients. Simmer until hot and bubbly. Serve as a main dish with a side of cornbread, hot buttered corn tortillas, or over rice. Or serve as a side dish with a Mexican or South Western themed meal. Top with finely minced onion if you want something really good.

Makes 2 servings.
