We almost always have chili and corn bread for dinner on Halloween so this year I thought I’d try a new chili recipe. This recipe comes from http://www.about.com. It was really, really good!
1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin or extra lean ground beef
1 large sweet onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 large garlic cloves, minced (or pressed)
1 (4 oz) can chopped mild green chile peppers
2 (14.5 oz each) cans diced tomatoes
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ancho chile powder or more chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon leaf oregano
dash chipotle chile powder, optional
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
salt and pepper to taste
In a large deep skillet or Dutch oven, brown beef, add onion and bell pepper and saute until onion is tender. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer over low heat for 1 – 2 hours or transfer to crock pot and cook on low 4 – 6 hours.
