Really easy! I made this recipe myself, one of my best so far. It was great. ^^ mm-mm we let it simmer for a really long time, but I think an hour would be good to make sure it's cooked and the flavors in it.

    it is browned through and broken apart. Drain most of the grease from the meat.
  2. In seperate pot #2 heat vinegar, ketchup, sugar, salt, about 2 pinches of pepper, cayenne, worstershire sauce, soup mix and season all to just below a boil.
  3. While bringing the mixture in pot #2 to a boil, add into pot #1 tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, bell pepper, and red pepper to meat and mix well.
  4. Add mixture in pot #2 to pot #1 and let simmer for at least 1 hour. The longer it simmers, the better it tastes!
