Fast and Easy Chili



2 pounds of ground beef

1 large can (about 30 ounces) of black beans

1 large can (about 30 ounces) of red kidney beans

1 large can (about 30 ounces) of whole pealed tomatoes

1 regular can (about 15 ounces) of diced tomatoes

2 small cans (about 5 ounces each) chopped green chilies

2 fresh bell peppers (chopped)

2 fresh sweet onions (chopped)

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 1 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

2 tablespoons minced garlic

Dash of Tabasco Sauce

1 3 whole fresh jalapeno pepper



In a large pan on the stovetop heat the olive oil adding the garlic, onion and bell pepper. Cook until the onion and bell pepper are soft. Add the ground beef and cook until brown then add the remainder of the ingredients. Lower heat and simmer for about 1 hour. Serve with or without rice. You can adjust the spices to your own taste. I usually add a little more Tabasco.
