Easy Chili and Chicken Chili

For our big gathering this past weekend, I made two kinds of chili to feed the crowds.** They are quick and easy and turned out great! Here are the recipes:
Quick and Easy Chili--
1 pound ground meat (this time I used ground sirloin but I have made this with ground turkey and deer meat too)
2 cans Ranch Style beans
1 medium onion, diced
1 can chili ready tomatoes

Brown meat and onion in large saucepan or skillet.

When meat is cooked through, drain fat and add remaining ingredients.

Heat through. Serve with cornbread, Fritos, sour cream, cheese, jalapenos or whatever else your little heart desires. You can spice this up in any number of ways. you could use plain tomatoes and a packet of chili seasoning mix. You could use the Ranch Style Beans with Jalapenos in them. I make mine this way because I am not big on spicy stuff and my Daddy was here to eat and he can't handle the hot stuff either; except for Momma but that's another story for another time...

Now for the Chicken Chili:

3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, diced
1 can diced tomatoes with garlic and onion
1 pkg chili seasoning mix
1 can whole kernel sweet corn
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Combine chicken, tomatoes and seasoning in a saucepan or skillet.

Cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked through.

Add corn and beans.

Simmer 5 minutes or until heated through.

Again, yes, it is just that easy! This is great with chips, cheese and sour cream. Jalapenos if you must!

**The ingredient quantities listed are for a regular recipe. All pictures show a double recipe cooking. We fed 9 adults and 5 children until they were stuffed and had lots of leftovers for the week. Both of these freeze well and are excellent on camping trips!
