Once reduced to a simmer, cover and cook 1 1/2-2 hours until desired thickness. For thicker chili, add 2-4 tablespoons of cornstarch or flour.(I had too much chili for one pan so had to divide it lol)

Serve in bread bowls and top with cheese! For a healthier alternative, this chili also goes great with wheat thins :) Refrigerate or freeze leftovers for future meals. Enjoy!
