Simple Chili Comforts on Cold Nights

This crowd-pleasing hearty dish packs a lot of flavor with minimal preparation. In about one hour you can have a delicious pot of chili that tastes like it has been simmering for hours. Cornbread rounds out the chili perfectly. Serve the chili with sides of sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, and lots of freshly chopped white onion.
