The cool days and even cooler New England nights make for simmering a pot of this 5-ingredient chili quick and delicious! 

5-ingredient chili m perfect for football season!

Am I the only one that’s happy summer is (almost officially) over? Having grown up in the Caribbean, I lived an eternal summer – every month from January to December were between the temperatures of 65-90 degrees, daily. Basically, every day was a beach day, no matter what. So when I discovered the fall season when moving to New York for culinary school, I fell in love – head over heels love! The crisp air, the change of colors in leaves, the cool nights – and now, after being married to a Patriots fan, the football watching days and nights!

This is a quick and easy recipe for making a pot of chili that will warm you from the inside out – and instead of chopping, dicing, and mincing garlic, onions, peppers and more, I decided to go the faster and most convenient way and used Sabra Southwestern Style Salsa as my tomatoes and vegetables in this dish – it turned out incredible and on the table in under 30 minutes.

  2. Yes yes yes. I love that salsa for making soups, but never made chili with it. Totally making this, it looks awesome!

  3. 5 stars
    Love the idea of using already prepared salsa in your chili! More more convenient than opening a bunch of cans and measuring a bunch of spices. I recently found that beer is the key to awesome chili, too, though I’m not sure why (the yeast, the booze?) Signed up for the holder! Love the new water activated Bounty. Use it on my ceramic stove stop and granite counter tops. It’s great at cleaning up greasy messes!
