25 Minutes or Less: Fast Chilis That Taste Slow Cooked

Chili has come a long way from the dried beef and chili blend carried by Texas cowboys on roundups. Today, there are countless versions of this truly American dish. Our collection of quick-cooking chilis uses ground beef, but feel free to experiment with ground pork or turkey. To achieve a slow-cooked taste in less than 25 minutes, we’re incorporating easy, store-bought sauces and condiments that will achieve the depth of flavor without the hours of simmering.

Mole Chili

This tasty chili is delicious served over beans and rice and accompanied by warm flour tortillas.

We’ve all heard that mole sauce takes days to make. We say, “Who says?” Your local supermarket will carry mole paste and that equals instant mole sauce. Keep a supply of it in your pantry and you’ll be ready to whip up this rich and delicious chili in no time.

Corn and Black Bean Chili with Beef

Corn and black beans are a natural combination of flavors and textures for this ready-in-minutes chili.

The addition of store-bought Picante sauce will have you — and your guests — believing this chili cooked for hours.

Beef Chili with Hominy

Comfort food at its best, this chili with hominy is a snap to prepare.

Another great shortcut to slow-cooked taste! Canned hominy (dried white corn) is very convenient and has a wonderful earthy taste and texture that is perfect for chili.

Cincinnati Chili

A quick and easy one-dish meal — chili never tasted so good!

A match made in heaven, Cincinnati chili pairs its delicious blend of ingredients with spaghetti and flavors it with a touch of cinnamon for a particularly tasty dish.

Chili with Chipotles and Tomatillo Salsa

Tomatillo salsa adds depth to this fast-cooking chili.

Smoky chipotle chiles in adobo sauce beautifully blend with the flavors of refreshing tomatillo salsa to give this chili its unique taste.
