2 slices bacon, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup chili powder
1 15-oz. can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 15-oz. can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 28-oz. can diced tomatoes
1 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth


Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until softened but not crispy, about 2 minutes. Drain all but 1 Tbsp. fat from skillet. Add onion and garlic and cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until onion has softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in chili powder and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.

Stir in beans, tomatoes and broth and bring briefly to a boil. Turn heat to medium-low and simmer until chili is slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and serve.
