I LOVE to create new recipes. My son’s love for beans and cheese is the inspiration for this very simple chili. It’s perfect served with corn bread and salad.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 3 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, undrained
  • 2 (1.25 ounce) packages chili seasoning mix (such as French's Chili-O Original Seasoning Mix®)
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (1 pound) package processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®), cubed

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place ground beef into a large skillet and cook, stirring often, until the beef is browned and crumbled, about 10 minutes. Stir in green onions after 5 minutes. Drain excess grease.
  2. 2 Place ground beef mixture into a large soup pot over medium heat.
  3. 3 Stir in black beans, corn and its liquid, chili seasoning mix, crushed tomatoes, and water; stir to combine. If chili seems too thick, mix in a little more water.
  4. 4 Cover the chili and cook 1 hour; add processed cheese cubes, allow to melt, and stir into the chili until smooth just before serving.

Chef's Notes

Good with lean ground beef or ground turkey; To make in a slow cooker, brown ground beef and green onion in step 1, and transfer to a slow cooker. Set cooker to High setting and cook for 3 hours. Stir in processed cheese, allow to melt, and thoroughly mix before serving; As the chili cools, it'll become firm. This is caused by the processed cheese; it will soften up again when warmed.


  1. Soo good wow
  2. Made as written and this isn't a very pretty pot of chili but the taste is alright. 2 packages of chili season flavors 4 pounds of meat so 2 packages seemed a bit excessive but it worked out fine. This could easily work as a dip with chips as well.
  3. I really liked it but I like the slow cooker method the Best Yummy
