Timesaving Chili: A Family Favorite (NAPSA) - Weeknight dinners that satisfy the whole family can be less of a challenge than many people realize. Comforting, filling and quickly prepared meals don't have to mean less nutritious choices for busy families. One good idea, for example, is chili-a dish most families enjoy. With a timesaving recipe that's ready to serve in half an hour, the family can be eating in less time than the pizza delivery.
For guests, chili makes a crowd-pleasing presentation served buffet style, along with a selection of toppings such as grated cheese, scallions, cilantro, chopped avocado and sour cream. Tortilla chips and a simple green salad complete the meal.
The next day, picadillo chili can be used for filling tortillas for lunch. Simply reheat leftovers and spoon onto a warmed flour tortilla. Add shredded cheese if you still have some, roll up and serve.
Combine cumin, chili powder, salt and cinnamon. Coat chicken evenly with seasonings.
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook 5 minutes. Add chicken and garlic.
Cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in tomatoes, salsa and raisins. Bring to a simmer. Cover and cook 10 minutes.
Stir in beans. Cover and continue to simmer 5 minutes. Ladle into bowls and serve with desired toppings.
