Ground beef + chili beans + diced tomatoes

The trick to making a deeply flavored chili without having to raid your spice cabinet is in a can of "chili beans," which are just pinto beans in chili sauce. You stir them into a pound of ground beef that you've cooked (and drained), along with a can of diced tomatoes (use "chili-ready," if you can find them). Simmer for about 30 minutes and you've got a surprisingly rich supper.
