Weeknight Two-Bean ChiliThe New Year is here, and with the arrival of January 1 likely comes a healthy-eating mindset as well. But no matter how strictly you plan to adhere to your resolutions, chances are you’re not willing to compromise on flavor — or the time it takes to prep a meal. Enter Food Network Kitchen’s fast-fix chili to save the day.

Every bit as hearty as a beefy main dish, this Weeknight Two-Bean Chili gets its heft from a duo of beans and a welcome punch of bold, smoky flavor from a combination of chili powder and Chinese five-spice powder. All it takes is a few minutes of simmering to bring the flavors of the tomato-based chili together, while a bed of brown rice and a topping of cheddar cheese when serving rounds out the meal and offers the decadent bite you crave. Since this good-for-you chili can be on the table in only 30 minutes, it’s a go-to pick on hectic nights when supper can’t come soon enough.
