This is the simple, hearty food you want as the kids go back to school and schedules get hectic. The combination of both black and white beans creates a nice mix, without having you raid your pantry. The canned goods in this dinner make it super simple, and the prep comes together quickly. Set it on the table with toppings you have on hand: cheddar, sour cream, green onions, radishes, and lime wedges. Have the family create their own for a fun, customizable dinner that makes for great leftovers the next day. Top with extra jalapeños for an added kick.

1. In a 5- to 6-qt. pot (preferably wide), heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, mushrooms, carrots, jalapeños, and salt. Cover and cook until vegetables get juicy, 5 to 8 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring often, until mixture begins to brown, 10 to 15 minutes more.

2. Add chili powder and cumin; stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in broth, beans, tomatoes, and tomato sauce and bring to a simmer. Add more salt to taste and simmer to heat through and combine flavors, about 10 minutes.

3. Ladle chili into wide bowls and serve with your favorite toppings.
