Feeding the Active Writer: No Cook Chili

I was really in a hurry when I knocked this one out.  I was running late and needed something to take to work for my lunch entree.

“No Cook” is, perhaps a bit of a misnomer since I used pre-cooked canned meat in the recipe.  Still, the results were surprisingly tasty.


  • 1 28 oz can “Keystone” beef
  • 1 16 Oz jar Chi-Chi’s “thick and chunky” medium salsa
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp dried cilantro
  • 1/2 Tbsp ground cumin

Mix it all in a bowl.

Really.  That’s it.

Heat it up (microwave is fine) when you’re ready to eat it.  Serve topped with a bit of cheese and with whatever side dishes you prefer (I usually use non-starchy vegetables–it’s a diet thing).
