Stock up on canned beans, corn and tomatoes for super-fast, one-pot meals.


1 tsp canola oil

1 medium garlic clove(s), minced

14 1/2 oz stewed tomatoes

15 oz canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained

15 1/4 oz canned yellow corn, drained

15 oz canned tomato sauce

1 Tbsp chili powder

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 cup(s) dehydrated onion flakes

1/4 tsp black pepper

4 Tbsp low-fat shredded cheddar cheese, sharp-variety


Heat oil in a large, nonstick, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until aromatic, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, beans, corn, tomato sauce, chili powder, oregano, red pepper flakes, onion and pepper; stir well.

Increase heat to high and bring chili to a boil; cook, stirring frequently, until chili is thick and flavors are concentrated, about 5 minutes. Spoon into serving bowls and sprinkle with cheese. Yields about 1 1/4 cups chili and 1 tablespoon cheese per serving.


Use a heavy pot or the chili can burn easily. If it starts to stick to the pan, reduce the heat and stir constantly.
