One Pot Chili

This recipe is so easy! I usually make my chili with McCormick's seasoning packet (one packet, 2 cans of tomato sauce, 1 can of kidney beans). But I saw this on Southern Plate, and it looked easy and good. And that it was, easy and good. It adds rice, which I've never done before. It makes a good filler. The best thing about this dish? It's in the name, one pot!

One Skillet Chili Bake
from Southern Plate

1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 can red kidney beans
1 can Ro-Tel (or one small can diced tomatoes and small can chopped green chilies)
1/2 Cup uncooked rice (I recommend instant, my slow cook rice wasn't completely cooked. I also used brown.)
2 Tablespoons chili powder
1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 Cup water, if needed (I needed the whole cup.)

In large skillet, brown beef or turkey and drain well. Add beans, Ro-Tel, Rice, Chili Powder, and water. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes or until rice is done. Uncover and top with cheddar cheese. Continue cooking until cheese melts. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, or french bread.
