Chili is a hearty and satisfying option for making cold weather comfort dishes. In this super simple recipe, ground beef is sauteed with garlic, onion, and diced bacon or sausage (or go for it and add both) until browned all the way through, doused with white wine, and then simmered with a can of red beans until they are heated through and all the flavors have a chance to meld. It's ready in about a half hour, making this a much quicker option that traditional versions.
