Winner, Winner, 30 minute Chili dinner!

Recipe
serves 8 - 10

1 pound of ground beef (chicken, turkey and pork are also good)
1 24 oz jar of traditional pasta sauce (use whatever flavor suits you)
12 oz of water (I use the jar and then shake the water inside so I get all the sauce out!)
1 can of kidney beans, drained (dark or light)
1 can of chili beans, liquid and all
2 green onions (use the whites)
1/4 cup diced yellow bell pepper (any color of bell pepper is fine)
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper (you can also add jalapenos or Serrano's for added heat)

Spices

2 and 1/2 Tbs of chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Toppings

Fresh, chopped Roma tomatoes
Greens from the green onions
Shredded cheese
Crushed Tortilla chips
Sour cream

Add whatever you like!

Take your peppers and green onions and put them in a big pot with your ground beef and brown it on medium heat.

Once your meat has browned, add in your beans (drain the kidney beans), jar of sauce and half a jar of water. Then add your spices. Stir together.

You should be at about the 10-12 minute mark. Bring this to a low boil and then reduce the heat and let it simmer for the rest of the time. About 15 minutes.

Serve it with whatever toppings you wish!

Enjoy!
