1 can is red kidney beans (low sodium)
1 can of northern beans
Add to browned meat
Add 1 can of corn (juice and all).
Add one pack of chili seasoning and one pack of ranch powder.
Add as much water as you want (less if you want the chili thick).
Let everything cook together for about 10 minutes or so.

enchilada zagna
