Quick and Easy Chili
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!

How to Make Quick and Easy Chili
- Place gr. beef, grn pepper, and onion in large soup pot or dutch oven. Cook on medium heat with lid on to saute vegetables and cook beef without browning them(adjust heat for your specific stove to accomplish this). Once beef is no longer pink, strain mixture of liquid/oil and return it to the pot. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring to blend well. Simmer on low until heated through, stirring occasionally, and it's ready to serve.
