Why You Should Always Have Canned Chili In Your Pantry
Whether served topped with cheese and chopped onion, over a baked potato, or with French fries, chili is a warm and rich meal that can elevate any weeknight. While making it from scratch is satisfying, there are many ways to hack canned chili so that it tastes just as good as homemade, making canned chili a great food to keep stocked in your pantry.
The great thing about canned chili is that it’s shelf-stable, meaning it will last in your pantry for a long time, and it’s a great base so you can add your own flavor or spruce it up with canned beans, additional seasonings, chopped tomatoes, jalapeño, or cilantro. If canned meat isn’t your style, you can opt for a vegetarian chili and add your own meat.
Having canned chili on hand means you're only a few steps away from making a great, easy supper that tastes handmade. There are countless options available when it comes to canned chili; however, since a serving of canned chili typically contains 1,336 milligrams of sodium, it is best to check the nutrition label for salt content and possibly choose a low-sodium option.
