Intelligent Fast Food

A quick and healthy weekend meal is an easy, no frills, chili.  It can be made ahead or thrown in the crock pot on warm while the family is enjoying winter activities.  This recipe serves 2 - 4.  When our children were home I added another can of beans to stretch the recipe to feed 6.

One can or jar of pasta sauce (.99)
one lb browned ground beef, drained (2.49)
one - two cans of red kidney beans (light or dark) (.89)
one onion cut up in large chunks (optional)
one pepper cut in large chunks (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a crock pot, heat on warm until dinner is ready.  (cost is 4.37 for 2 - 4 servings or 5.26 for 6)

Serve with Italian bread or tortillas and a salad.
