10ouncecan diced tomatoes with green chiles(I use Rotel or Hunt's Seasoned Diced Tomatoes in Sauce for Chili)
Optional toppings: cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips, cilantro, green onions
Mix the meat, beans and tomatoes together in large pot. Bring it to a boil over medium heat and then bring heat to medium low and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes.
Salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy with your favorite toppings such as cheese and sour cream.
For a little heat, use medium Rotel. For mild, use plain diced tomatoes or mild Rotel. If you'd like even more heat, add in a little chili powder or hot sauce.
You could also combine in a crock pot and cook on low for 3-4 hours.
When adding other ingredients, the key is to keep the ratios 1 pound of meat, 1 can of beans, 1 can of diced tomatoes. If it's too thick, just add a small can of tomato sauce, along with a little chili powder.
