Place ground beef into a large skillet and cook, stirring often, until the beef is browned and crumbled, about 10 minutes. Stir in green onions after 5 minutes. Drain excess grease.
Place ground beef mixture into a large soup pot over medium heat.
Stir in black beans, corn and its liquid, chili seasoning mix, crushed tomatoes, and water; stir to combine. If chili seems too thick, mix in a little more water.
Cover the chili and cook 1 hour; add processed cheese cubes, allow to melt, and stir into the chili until smooth just before serving.

Good with lean ground beef or ground turkey.
To make in a slow cooker, brown ground beef and green onion in step 1, and transfer to a slow cooker. Set cooker to High setting and cook for 3 hours. Stir in processed cheese, allow to melt, and thoroughly mix before serving.
As the chili cools, it'll become firm. This is caused by the processed cheese; it will soften up again when warmed.
