Confetti Chili Real food fast!

I love chili. It's my favorite cold weather dish. And it's a great way to get full and load up on extra vegetables. It's easy to make and packed with flavor. 

Last week I made what I call confetti chili. (I am pretty sure there is already a dish out there with the same name... but whatevs.)

One thing about this recipe I love is that it's totally customizable, but it's also great for busy nights. And it's real food. 

What you'll need:

1/2 pound lean ground beef or turkey or chicken or venison

1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes 

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 small onion, diced 

2 tbsp taco seasoning (or a package from the store- I use this because NO MSG!) 

1 12 ounce bag Bird's Eye Southwest Blend mixed vegetables


2 medium onions, diced 

1 can black beans

1 can whole kernel corn

1 small red pepper 

1 small Poblano pepper with the seed removed

Cook garlic and onions over a low heat until they are translucent. Add in your meat and brown. Then add in your taco seasoning.

Then I add in my Southwest Blend. In a perfect world I would use all fresh ingredients, but I got this bag free with a coupon and for days when you're busy it's nice to have handy.

Cover and let simmer for 20-30 minutes. 

Garnish with sour cream and cheese and serve. 

What's your favorite cool weather dish?
