My favorite GO-TO chili recipes.

Image via Google.

Yesterday it rained. Poured, actually.
Us AZ peeps get super excited when this happens. 
{Because it doesn't seem to happen TOO often.}

When it DOES happen...it {slightly} cools things down for us in this sweltering heat.
Like from 105 degrees to like low 90s.
And that slight cool down meant....
yesterday, there was a tinge and I mean TINGE of fall in the air. 
{Yes..when you're from AZ...low 90s means fall is near!}

I've been wanting to make soup lately but who really wants to make soup when your air conditioning is cranked down to 78 degrees? 

I jumped on the chance and made chili.
I made so much we invited my parents over.
My kids licked their bowls dry.

So for those of you who are A LOT closer to feeling 'fall' than me...enjoy my TWO very favorite GO-TO chili recipes.  They're both SUPER simple and SUPER tasty.

{But they both have beans. And you know what that means...
Don't say you haven't been warned!}

Taco Soup -- Chili
{from my cute friend Rebecca}

Brown together:
1 lb. ground turkey or beef
1/2 onion

Drain then add:

1 can pinto beans
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can corn
2 cans diced tomatoes {with juices}
1 can Rotel tomatoes {with juices}
1  package taco seasoning 

Let simmer and heat.
Garnish with cheese and sour cream.

We serve this with warm rolls. 
My kids LOVE dipping tortilla chips in this!
