Homemade Chili

1 lb. lean ground beef

1 large onion

2 medium green or red peppers

1 can tomatoes with juice

4 tsp. chili powder (or to taste)

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. pepper

1 can red kidney beans, rinsed

In large, heavy saucepan cook ground meat with onion, garlic and peppers until meat is brown, stirring frequently.  Drain off any fat.  Break tomatoes into chunks and add to saucepan.  Stir in chili powder, salt and pepper until well mixed.  Stir in beans and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Check to see if extra liquid is required, either water or tomato juice, and cook for 10 more minutes stirring frequently.

Extra lean ground beef, ground chicken or turkey are healthy alternatives with less fat.  Kidney beans and peppers provide fibre.
