Chili is a favourite in Joan's household, where a chili ingredient battle rages constantly. Joan prefers a mix of kidney and black beans, but Corey and the kids constantly lobby for canned pork and beans instead. On special days she relents, and you can, too, replacing one of the cans below with pork and beans. No matter which beans you use, any leftovers are even more delicious reheated the next day. A batch of this chili can also be the base of a mouth-watering Mexican Lasagna.
