1 tbs. oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 large cloves garlic minced
1 lb. hamburger
1 large can whole tomatoes broken up with the juice
2 tbs tomato paste
2 tbs. chili powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 – 1 cup each chopped : carrots, celery, green pepper
1 large can kidney beans, (drained and rinsed well)
In sauce pan heat oil, sauté garlic, onions and beef. Cook until beef is brown. Drain fat. Place in slow cooker, or large soup pot. Add remaining ingredients, except kidney beans. Simmer slowly several hours. 20 minutes before serving, add kidney beans. Serve with some grated cheddar cheese on top.
*Note: I like to use the Penzy Spices Medium to Hot Chili Powder. It’s delicious!
