Although I am usually a proponent of fresh ingredients, this has canned beans and tomato sauce. It just makes it so easy!
The nice thing about this is the preparation time and the cooking time happen simultaneously, so if you're in a hurry you can really have this on the table in about 30-40 minutes. Follow one directions and while that is cooking move onto the next! You will end up with a pot of good stuff!
(If you want to make this ahead of time, you could make it in the crock pot. Dump everything in and cook it on low for several hours)
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
7 pieces of bacon (turkey bacon works if you're watchin' the waist line!)
15 oz can of chili beans
15 oz can of red kidney beans
15 oz can of pinto beans
29 oz can of tomato sauce
1 cup corn
3 cloves garlic
3 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Half a block of yellow cheddar cheese
Bread on the Side
1 loaf of fresh fresh bread
2 tablespoons butter

1. Heat a pan to medium heat. Slice bacon and add it to the pan.
2. While that is cooking chop the onion and add to the bacon.
3. Finely chop 3 cloves of garlic and add. Cook for about 3 minutes.
