Two words – no effort !

But... lots of flavour!

This is the ultimate bachelor chili, you only need the most normal condiments, like canned everything. I normally do not use anything canned unless I have to, and prefer to make things from scratch. But sometimes you just want it easy. This is the recipe that takes easy to a completely new level.

No frying, no baking, no all-kinds-of-tools needed, just a simple and ease one pot meal. Basically you put in all the ingredients at once (!) defying all cooking methods ! Just turn the heat on high and wait. Hahah!

Gotta do it the real bachelor way right? Very authentic! And somehow it works and it's very satisfying.

Perfect for when you really don’t have time to cook, are travelling and want a home cooked proper meal, or maybe you’re not used to cooking at all, and this is a very easy way to start !

As pictured I use 3 small onions, but use 2 big ones if you have that, I also used black quinoa, but use red, white or a mixed quinoa if you have that. Wanna use other canned ingredients? Only have canned peas instead of corn? Just try it out and experiment !
