This was a great meal without a lot of effort. You can take a shortcut and cook your meat ahead of time. I usually have some precooked meat in the freezer for quick weeknight meals. I used a can of Rotel chili fixins. It is basically tomatoes, green chilies and chili seasonings. If you can't find the Rotel chili fixins, use a can of tomatoes and green chilies and add a few tablespoons of chili powder.
Serve this Skillet Chili and Rice with some Cornbread or Cheesy Biscuits for an easy and delicious meal!
