Notes for this quick chili recipe:

If you don’t want to use chorizo, just use additional ground beef or a different ground sausage. Like most chili recipes, this recipe is easy to adapt to your preference.

If you want to try cooking this chili in a slow cooker, add the BUSH’S Chili Beans later in the process to keep them from overcooking, because remember, these beans are already slow-simmered and ready to go!
