Spicy Mexican Enchilada Chili

We are some chili lovin’ fools in this house but we get tired of the same ole recipe even though it is delicious. Variety is the spice of life, right? So I’m always on the look out for new chili recipes to try. This one caught my eye awhile ago and I made some tweaks so it would fit our taste. The kids enjoyed it and Matt raved about it. I loved that it was a quick dinner on a busy night.

As I said above, this was a quick dinner to get on the table. I even cooked the ground beef the night before so I could just toss the chili together on the stove top when we rushed in the house at 6pm. 20 minutes later we were sitting down to a delicious meal.

    Yum, this looks really good. My boys have been on a chili dog kick lately, so this will be a fun way to switch it up.

    • The kids loved it! And I love how easy it was to make and clean up. All pluses in the summer!
