Cheap and Tasty: Spicy Chili Beans and Rice

Spicy Chili Beans and Rice

This recipe comes from my Brother Todd and his wife Emily. Their super fast dish of spicy chili beans and rice only requires three ingredients. It is great for those late evening games or work meetings. Plus the leftovers can be transformed into burritos or taco salad. Making for another inexpensive quick meal.

One note: I had a hard time finding Spicy Chili Beans. I ended up with a can of seasoned chili beans in a sauce found in the baking beans section of the canned goods isle. I had to add a little salt for taste. Probably due more to allergies than a bland can of beans.

1 15 oz can of spicy chili beans
1 lb. ground beef
Rice or Nacho chips

Ground beef, add beans, let simmer for about 15 minutes on low. Serve with rice or tortilla chips. Garnish with sour cream and cheese if desired.
