When Sunday rolls around, I know I should get lunches prep’d for the upcoming week but I procrastinate anyway. I make so many excuses: maybe I can just buy my lunch, or maybe I’ll make something tomorrow morning. 

If that sounds familiar, this chilli recipe is great. Put everything in a pot, and check on it in 30 minutes. You can prepare it on a Sunday evening, with enough to last you for most of the week. If you’re feeling ambitious, try fresh tomatoes and make this in a slow cooker.

By the way: along with this recipe, Krystal made the amazing video below. Thanks Krystal! Follow the steps in the video, or the recipe instructions below.
