  • 1 lb ground beef ( I use 97/3)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup green pepper, chopped into small cubes
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cans (15.5 oz each) red kidney beans
  • 2 cans (8 oz each) of tomato sauce
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) petit diced tomatoes
  • 8 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (optional)


  • In a large pot add ground beef and cook on medium heat until browned and all juices came out, about 10 minutes. Drain grease, if necessary. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add onions, peppers, and garlic, cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in canned beans, tomatoes (with juices) and chili powder. Mix well. Bring mixture to boil. Cover the pot and cook over low heat for 20-25 minutes; stirring occasionally.
  • Serve topped  with cheese and sour cream, if desired.
