They're portable, easy to make, good for any time of day, and these recipes all take 20 minutes or less.
Taking less than 15 minutes, this is a time-friendly recipe. It's also budget-friendly, as it stretches just half a pound of beef to feed six hungry people. The spicy bean-beef-and-tomato chili, served on a bun, might be sloppy to eat, but it's worth it. You can also serve just as easily in a bowl like regular chili (with corn bread, please).
