Chili. It’s what’s for supper.

This Black Bean Chili is perfect for a weeknight supper. This is one of the best chili recipes and such a favorite because it’s so hearty – and so easy! And it doesn’t have to simmer all day long for it to be delicious!

I don’t know about you, but that’s my kind of meal – especially when I’m in a rush during the week!

Don’t get me wrong, I love a slow cook chili that simmers and bubbles on the stove for the afternoon and slow cooker chili is absolutely a favorite.

But, let’s be real.

There are many days that our clock strikes 4 o’clock and I haven’t started anything for supper. These are the days that I love to pull out a recipe like this without missing a beat in flavor and taste. These are just the days for this easy chili recipe!

It’s just a smart idea to have a good chili recipe like this one in your arsenal for such nights. Here’s how I make it.

How to Make Weeknight Black Bean Chili

Add diced bacon to a heavy bottomed stock pot over medium heat. Cook until crispy, then add onions and garlic and cook until tender.

Add ground beef to brown and cook until done. Drain off any excess grease, put cooked ingredients back in pot, then back on stove over medium heat.

Add seasonings, tomatoes, and black beans. Reduce to a simmer and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Serve the cooked chili topped with sour cream and shredded cheese if you desire. I love this chili with some tortilla chips or my Southern Buttermilk Cornbread on the side. Delicious!
