Feel free to adjust the quantities of the seasonings to your taste. Also,if you use a leaner ground beef(80/20 or 90/10) use a little cooking oil in the pan before adding the meat,gr.peppers, and onions. Leftovers,if there are any,can be stored in the refrigerator for a few weeks. Tastes even better the next day, so adjust quantities to make some for now and some for later. Freezes well. My family likes it with hot dogs(ie. chili dogs); my preference is in a bowl topped with grated cheese(cheddar, american, or colby) and a dollop of sour cream-YUM :o) Enjoy-and let me know if you try it what you think!
