The first time I ever made this chili was the night of a snowstorm. My husband was outside clearing our driveway. I knew he would come in cold and hungry - and I knew I needed him to get warm and full before he noticed that he was the only one outside shoveling! Since this chili only takes half an hour to prepare and I always have the ingredients on hand (seriously - there are only four ingredients plus water), its perfect for a last-minute supper on a cold day. There's nothing like sitting down to a bowl of perfectly seasoned chili to warm you up - and there's nothing like preparing a hearty, healthy dinner in 30 minutes!
