Cowboy Chili

Nothing better than curling up with a bowl of hot, steaming chili on a cold, rainy day!   Love the looks of this Cowboy Chili, found at Chef in Training.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 2 tbs. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 14.5 oz. can stewed tomatoes
  • 2 cans drained kidney beans
  • 1/3 cup chili powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 2 tsp. cumin

Directions

Brown ground beef, then add onion, bell pepper and garlic and saute for a minute.  Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.  If you want a thicker chili, add 1/3 cup water and 2 tbs. mesa flour after it as simmered for 20 minutes, and let it cook an additional five minutes.
